What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones. It involves loss of normal bone density, mass, and strength. This leads to thinning of the bones and vulnerability to fracture. Some risk factors include female, Caucasian, small in body size, smoking, low estrogen levels after menopause, vitamin deficiencies, certain medications, and decreased activity with increased age. The test that determines if you have this condition is a bone density study.
