Newsletters by Email Osteoporosis: A debilitating disease that can be prevented and treated.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. If not prevented or if left untreated, osteoporosis can progress painlessly until a bone breaks. These broken bones , also known as fractures, occur typically in the hip, spine, and wrist. Any bone can be affected, but of special concern are fractures of the hip and spine. A hip fracture almost always requires hospitalization and major surgery. It can impair a person's ability to walk unassisted and may cause prolonged or permanent disability or even death. Spinal or vertebral fractures also have serious consequences, including loss of height, severe back pain, and deformity. Millions of Americans are at risk. While women are four times more likely than men to develop the disease, men also suffer from osteoporosis.

Boning Up on Osteoporosis
Consider an insidious condition that drains away bonethe hardest, most durable substance in the body. It happens slowly, over years, so that often neither doctor nor patient is aware of weakening bones until one snaps unexpectedly. Unfortunately, this isn't science fiction. It's why osteoporosis is called the silent thief. And it steals more than bone. It's the primary cause of hip fracture, which can lead to permanent disability, loss of independence, and sometimes even death. Collapsing spinal vertebrae can produce stooped posture and a "dowager's hump." Lives collapse too. The chronic pain and anxiety that accompany a frail frame make people curtail meaningful activities because, in extreme cases, the simplest things can cause broken bones: Stepping off a curb. A sneeze. Bending to pick up something. A hug. "Don't touch Mom, she might break" is the sad joke in many families. Osteoporosis leads to 1.5 million fractures, or breaks, per year, mostly in the hip, spine and wrist, with the cost of treatment estimated at $17 billion and rising, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It threatens 34 million Americans, mostly older women, but older men get it too. One in 2 women and 1 in 4 men older than 50 will suffer a vertebral fracture, according to the NIH. These numbers are predicted to rise as the population ages.

Osteoporosis Overview
Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. Men as well as women suffer from osteoporosis, a disease that can be prevented and treated.
Facts and Figures Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for 28 million Americans, 80% of whom are women. In the U.S. today, 10 million individuals already have osteoporosis and 18 million more have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for this disease. One out of every two women and one in eight men over 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime. More than 2 million American men suffer from osteoporosis, and millions more are at risk. Each year, 80,000 men suffer a hip fracture and one-third of these men die within a year. Osteoporosis can strike at any age. Osteoporosis is responsible for more than 1.5 million fractures annually, including 300,000 hip fractures, and approximately 700,000 vertebral fractures, 250,000 wrist fractures, and more than 300,000 fractures at other sites. Estimated national direct expenditures (hospitals and nursing homes) for osteoporosis and related fractures is $14 billion each year.

La masa ósea de una persona va aumentando a lo largo de su vida hasta llegar a un "pico máximo" alrededor de los 30 ó 35 años. A partir de esta edad (30-35 años) existe de forma natural una progresiva pérdida de masa ósea. Cuando la pérdida progresiva se acelera, lo cual ocurre en ciertas enfermedades o hábitos de vida o en el caso de la mujer al llegar a la menupausia, puede llegarse a la ostoporosis en edades precoces.

Osteoporosis Plan - Its time to fight back!!
By Dr Stephen Holt If anyone has been unfortunate enough to witness an episode of spontaneous fracture of a bone in an individual of osteoporosis, then they will need no introduction to the tragic and sinister consequences of the modern epidemic of "thin bones and creaky joints" Unfortunately, we take our bones for granted but they are just as dynamic and alive as any other body tissue. It is about time that we throw down the gauntlet and combat osteoporosis.
What is Osteoporosis?
The term osteoporosis literally means "porous bones." Osteoporosis is a progressive disease in which the bones gradually become weaker and weaker, causing changes in posture and making the individual extremely susceptible to bone fractures.
