Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both. As a result, bones become weak and may break from a fall or, in serious cases, from sneezing or minor bumps. Osteoporosis means “porous bone.”Many people have no symptoms until they have a bone fracture! It mainly affects those over 50 years old but sometimes even younger people.Treatment includes medication (or supplementation), a healthy diet and weight-bearing exercise to help prevent bone loss or strengthen already weak bones.
