Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disorder of the bones. It happens when you lose too much bone; make too little bone or both. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a minor fall or, in serious cases, even from simple actions, like sneezing or bumping into furniture. Osteoporosis means "porous bone." If you look at healthy bone under a microscope, you will see that parts of it look like a honeycomb. If you have osteoporosis, the holes and spaces in the honeycomb are much bigger than they are in healthy bone. This means your bones have lost density or mass and that the structure of your bone tissue has become abnormal. As your bones become less dense, they also become weaker and more likely to break. If you’re age 50 or older and have broken a bone, talk to your doctor or other healthcare provider and ask if you should have a bone density test.

Breaking a bone is a serious complication of osteoporosis, especially when you’re older. Broken bones due to osteoporosis are most likely to occur in the hip, spine and wrist, but other bones can break too. Broken bones can cause severe pain that may not go away. Osteoporosis also causes some people to lose height. When osteoporosis causes the bones of the spine, called vertebrae, to break or collapse, it affects your posture and causes you to become stooped or hunched.

Osteoporosis may even keep you from getting around easily and doing the things you enjoy, which may bring feelings of isolation or depression. It can also lead to other health problems. Twenty percent of seniors who break a hip die within one year from problems related to the broken bone itself or surgery to repair it. Many of those who survive need long-term nursing home care.

Causes of osteoporosis

There are two main types of osteoporosis: primary and secondary.

Primary osteoporosis occurs most commonly in women after menopause. Osteoporosis affects twice as many females over 70 years of age as males in the same age group.

Secondary osteoporosis can affect young and middle-aged people as well. It may be caused by:
  • medications such as corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone*)
  • chronic illnesses such as anorexia nervosa (an eating disorder that leads to malnutrition)
  • too much exercise - women who exercise excessively may lose their menstrual cycle and the normal production of estrogen by the ovaries may stop

Factors that may increase the risk of osteoporosis include:
  • drop in estrogen after menopause
  • family history and body type
  • lifestyle factors and health conditions
  • lack of exercise
  • lack of calcium
