What is Osteoporosis ?

Osteoporosis, resulting in brittle bones, is a "silent thief" -- it robs your bones of calcium. There are no early warning signs until the disease results in broken bones. The skeleton becomes weakened and a minor fall can result in a fractured hip or wrist. Bones are not lifeless mineral deposits. Bones are constantly changing. They are dynamic, however, after menopause. They begin to break down.

There are signs of late osteoporoses is an accurate way of determining if osteoporosis is present. It is called Bone Densitometry. This test can often detect osteoporosis in the early stages before broken bones occur. The test can also be used to track bone response to treatment. Bone Densitometry is similar to an x-ray. There is also a urine test which can help determine if bone loss is occurring at a dangerous rate.
