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.

    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 $10 billion to $15 billion a year, according to the National Institutes of Health. It threatens 25 million Americans, mostly older women, but older men get it too. One in three women past 50 will suffer a vertebral fracture, according to the foundation. These numbers are predicted to rise as the population ages.

    Information Menopause, Osteoporosis and Hormone Replacement Therapy
    Menopause is the time in a woman's life when menstruation ceases. The associated decrease in the reproductive hormones can cause a wide variety of symptoms associated with the cessation of childbearing ability.
    These symptoms can last from six months to two years and are commonly experienced by women who are not on hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Hot flashes, sweating, heart palpitations and mood swings, are some of the symptoms that the erratic hormone levels associated with menopause may cause.
    How Menopause Happens
    During a woman's reproductive years, the ovaries produce estrogen and progesterone, the hormones necessary to induce ovulation and prepare the body for a successful pregnancy.
    With age, a woman's body no longer releases these hormones from the ovaries. The result is a cessation in ovulation and menstruation. Unfortunately, the decrease in hormones affects the body's ability to maintain calcium levels resulting in an increased loss of minerals from the bones. The net loss of calcium from the skeleton is a combination of changes in calcium excretion and calcium absorption.

    Information on the important aspects of the disease. With links to disease information, detection, treatment and prevention.
    Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens the bones, making them fragile and breakable. It is a silent disease since there are no symptoms; only when fractures occur is the disease apparent.
    Bone is a living tissue, full of calcium and mineral deposits. It is continuously formed and lost in a process known as remodeling. After early adulthood, bone loss exceeds bone formation, leading to a lifelong course of decreasing bone mass. The likelihood of developing osteoporosis is determined largely by the maximum amount of bone accumulated during growth i.e. peak bone mass (PBM) and the rate and duration of bone loss. The lower the PBM or the greater the rate of bone loss, the greater the risk of osteoporosis.

    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.

    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.

    Terms of Service: The Fine Print... Jeff Nelson Strong Boned Editorial Sorting through the Calcium Myths So far, all the hype about the importance of high calcium intake to build strong bones seems to be just that hype. Research points in other directions. The milk industry spends hundreds of millions promoting the notion that high calcium intake is critical to developing strong bones and preventing osteoporosis. On the basis of pure political power, the dairy business has succeeded in getting the USDA to raise the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for calcium, with ringing endorsements that dairy products are optimal calcium sources. With organizations hopping on the pro-calcium bandwagon like the American Dietetic Association and the Osteoporosis Foundation (both of which receive money from the dairy industry), many nutritionists have joined in the scaremongering by exhorting us to "get lots of calcium lest we grow a generation of vegans whose bones crumble!"
