What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones have reduced mineral density and quality and become fragile and brittle, leading to a higher risk of fractures.

The Greek word osteoporosis translates as ‘porous bones’ in English.

There are modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors for osteoporosis.

  • Fact 3 of 3

    Bones are living tissue and continually breakdown and re-build. We have a completely new skeleton every 7-10 years

How to prevent it?

Like any lifestyle related disease osteoporosis is largely about the choices we make – on what we eat and drink, and what we do.

Awareness and prevention can help millions of women lead a quality life without the fear of brittle bones, disability, pain and premature death due to osteoporosic fractures.
