Osteoporosis

Think you might have osteoporosis ?  What causes it and why is it especially of concern to women as they age? While you're here, why not Try our Diet Wizard to find out which weight loss programs can help you lose the weight?

Osteoporosis

Note: BestDietForMe.com does NOT provide medical advice or diagnoses. You should always consult your physician first, before beginning any weight loss regimen or if suffering from a medical condition.

Definition

Osteoporosis makes your bones weak and more likely to break. Anyone can develop osteoporosis, but it is common in older women. As many as half of all women and a quarter of men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.

Risk factors include:

Getting older

Being small and thin

Having a family history of osteoporosis

Taking certain medicines

Being a white or Asian woman

Having osteopenia, which is low bone mass

Osteoporosis is a silent disease. You might not know you have it until you break a bone. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health. To keep bones strong, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise and do not smoke. If needed, medicines can also help.

Osteoporosis: The Diagnosis

Osteoporosis is a condition of low bone density that can progress silently over a long period of time. If diagnosed early, the fractures associated with the disease can often be prevented. Unfortunately, osteoporosis frequently remains undiagnosed until a fracture occurs.

An examination to diagnose osteoporosis can involve several steps that predict your chances of future fracture, diagnose osteoporosis, or both. It might include:

an initial physical exam

various x rays that detect skeletal problems

laboratory tests that reveal important information about the metabolic process of bone breakdown and formation

a bone density test to detect low bone density.

Before performing any tests, your doctor will record information about your medical history and lifestyle and will ask questions related to:

risk factors, including information about any fractures you have had

your family history of disease, including osteoporosis

medication history

general intake of calcium and vitamin D

exercise pattern

for women, menstrual history.

In addition, the doctor will note medical problems and medications you may be taking that can contribute to bone loss (including glucocorticoids, such as cortisone). He or she will also check your height for changes and your posture to note any curvature of the spine from vertebral fractures, which is known as kyphosis.

Risk Factors for Osteoporotic Fracture Include:

personal history of fracture as an adult

history of fracture in a first-degree relative

Caucasian or Asian race, although African Americans and Hispanic Americans are at significant risk as well

advanced age

being female

dementia

poor health, frailty, or both

current cigarette smoking

low body weight

anorexia nervosa
