Did you know that osteoporosis is a common condition that affects bone mass and density?

 It’s a progressive disorder related to age and overall health, with various risk factors involved.

The consequence? Weakened bones that can break easily, even from minor incidents that should be harmless.

But here’s the catch – osteoporosis is often considered a “silent disease,” showing no visible symptoms until the first bone fracture occurs.

That’s why it’s crucial to be informed and take proactive steps to protect your bone health!

🔍 What are the signs and symptoms?

Many individuals may not even realise they have osteoporosis until they experience a fracture. Bone density loss can lead to compressed and wedge fractures in the spine, impacting posture, respiratory function, and overall mobility. Maintaining independence and quality of life becomes challenging.

⚙️ What causes it?

Osteoporosis is a metabolic disorder influenced by various factors. Conditions affecting calcium absorption, low dietary calcium or vitamin D levels, and certain medications can contribute to bone loss. Additionally, a sedentary lifestyle without weight-bearing activities can put you at risk.
