Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by the loss of the normal density of bone resulting in fragile skeleton and bone fractures. Although it affects both men and women, women are predisposed to the disease earlier because after menopause the loss of calcium is quicker. You should consult a specialist and have your bone density tested.
Symptoms: back pain, loss of height and easy fractures.
Osteoporosis prevention requires consuming a balanced diet with adequate calcium and vitamin D.
