What is osteoporosis / osteopenia?
Osteoporosis:when the strong bones with high mineral density(BMD) become porous, weak and thin it is termed as Osteoporosis or osteopenia. Due to this process of osteoporosis bones become more susceptible to fracture. As per Dr.Abhishek in osteoporosis condition not only bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced but it also alter various proteins present in the bone. Osteopenia also alter micro architecture of the bones. Women are more prone as their bones are light and thin as compare to male bones.
Secondly, female experience change in hormonal levels after menopause that also contribute to the loss of bone mass. In males osteoporosis / osteopenia is usually seen after the age of 65.
In India more that 6.3 million fractures are due to osteoporosis. As per a survey in United States of America-USA 26 million American population is effected by osteoporosis / osteopenia, of which 75% are female.
Hormonal Changes: During menopause around the age of 45-50yrs, 35% of female experience bone fracture due to osteoporosis / osteopenia, It is due to hormonal imbalance during menopause.
