Osteoporosis is a quiet disease without the horrible drama of heart disease or cancer. But it is a debilitating disease that affects millions of people every year. It can affect the quality of your life drastically. It is a disease that causes bones to become fragile and more likely to break. If undetected, it advances silently and without symptoms until a bone breaks. As we become older, our bones can lose heft or density. Their cushioning and resilience lessens. The impact of small falls or missteps can cause a brittle bone to break. Breaks, or fractures,can occur anywhere, but are most worrisone when they occur in the hip or the spine. A fracture of one of these vital bones will put you out of commission for far too long. It will put you in the hospital and will ususally require surgery. Fractures of the spine or vertebrae can also cause back pain, deformity (hunched backs, for instance) and loss of height. Osteoporosis generally affects people of middle age or older. Women are more likely than men to suffer from this disease, although men are not immune. But this disease is not an inevitability as you grow older, because

Osteoporosis leads to literally abnormally porous bone that is more compressible like a sponge, than dense like a brick. This disorder of the skeleton weakens the bone leading to an increase in the risk of breaking bones (bone fracture). Normal bone is composed of protein, collagen, and calcium. Bones that are affected by osteoporosis can fracture with only a minor fall or injury that normally would not cause a bone fracture. The fracture can be either in the form of cracking (as in a hip fracture ), or collapsing (as in a compression fracture of the

Osteoporosis is a disorder where the bones become weakened by loss of substance (osteopenia), leading to an increased risk of broken bones (fractures) with minimal trauma.
The thinning of the bones does not, in itself, cause much in the way of symptoms. It does, however, lead to a risk of broken bones without much of an injury. In fact the bones of the spine can sometimes collapse without any obvious cause. When the bones are significantly thinned (low in bone mass) people who fall are more likely to break their wrist, hip, or other bones. A cough or a sneeze is more likely to cause a fracture of a rib or the partial collapse of one of the bones of the spine (vertebra). Any bone is more at risk with osteoporosis. Osteoporosis affects people in a number of ways:
  • Pain . The broken bones (fractures), which can happen without any obvious cause, can lead to severe pain, which lasts for quite a number of weeks.
  • Financial . People (especially the elderly) who develop a fracture become more dependent on others to look after them. It may result in an independent person needing long term support at home, or even having to go into a nursing home.

Campaign urges osteoporosis testing
By Thurston Hatcher CNN (CNN) It's a silent disease, so you might not know you have it until you break something your wrist, your hip, maybe even your spine. Osteoporosis affects some 28 million Americans and can be treated. But according to a recent survey, nearly half of older women hadn't even been tested for it. Given those numbers, the National Council on the Aging has launched a national campaign aimed at educating people about the skeletal disease and the importance of testing. "We are trying to spread the word that this is not an inevitable part of aging," said Dr. Ethel Siris, director of the Toni Stabile Osteoporosis Center at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York. "There's a great deal you can do to prevent it, a great deal you can do to treat it." Osteoporosis gradually causes bones to more porous and fragile and is linked to about 1.5 million bone fractures each year. About 80 percent of those who have it are women, mostly 60 and older.

Osteoporosis Treating Osteoporosis Format for Printing Preventing osteoporosis by maintaining a health diet rich in calcium and vitamin D and exercising regularly can help many women avoid the serious effects of osteoporosis. Women who have low bone mineral density or osteoporosis may also benefit from taking hormone replacement therapy or other drug therapies. This section describes treatments for osteoporosis. Main Menu: Hormone Replacement Therapy Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is synthetic estrogen and/or progesterone (called progestin). HRT is designed to "replace" a woman's depleting hormone levels at menopause. HRT is commonly prescribed to help relieve menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. HRT is also used to help prevent osteoporosis. HRT is often effective against osteoporosis if taken during the first five years after menopause begins. HRT works against osteoporosis as long as the woman is taking estrogen; women lose protection once they have stopped taking HRT. It is estimated that HRT can lead to a 50% to 80% decrease in vertebral fractures and a 25% decrease in non-vertebral fractures with five years of use. Side effects of HRT vary from woman to woman but common side effects include:

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Osteoporosis not for women only
CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta Story Tools HEALTH LIBRARY Health Library Osteoporosis in men: Bone up on the facts (CNN) Osteoporosis is not a condition that is found only in women. It's a concern for men, too. CNN Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta spoke Wednesday with CNN's Heidi Collins about the disease that leaves bones weak and brittle. COLLINS: It might surprise you to know that 2 million American men have [osteoporosis] and 12 million more are at risk for it. ... This is kind of a surprise. GUPTA: It is kind of a surprise. Most people think of osteoporosis as a woman's disease. That's clearly not true. In fact, about 20 percent of osteoporosis sufferers are men. Conventional wisdom is that men have larger and bigger bones, and women when they go through menopause actually lose the estrogen, which builds up bones, and they have more problems with osteoporosis. Women outnumber men with regard to osteoporosis, but it is clearly a problem for both. ... ... If you look at the cycle of osteoporosis, [you'll see] that bone growth is something that occurs during the early part of your age. Bones grow in length and density during your youth. And then during the teenage years, they peak in height, and the bones start to grow more dense. They don't grow longer; they just grow more dense.

Osteoporosis can happen to any of your bones, but is most common in the hip, wrist, and in your spine, also called your vertebrae ( ver-tuh-bray). Vertebrae are important because these bones support your body to stand and sit upright. See the picture below. Osteoporosis in the vertebrae can cause serious problems for women.

Weight training, calcium, hormones the key to fighting osteoporosis
Weight training is one of the weapons to fight osteoporosis
November 6, 1998
Web posted at: 1:24 p.m. EDT (1724 GMT) TUCSON, Arizona (CNN) Researchers at the University of Arizona are looking for new ways to increase bone density in women. Early results show that combining strength training with hormone-replacement therapy and calcium supplements helps to strengthen bones. "Our exercise training program is a rigorous resistance program with weight-bearing aerobic activity combined with exercises for strength and balance," said researcher Linda Houtkooper Study participant Mary Ornelia, 60, said she knows she is at risk of developing osteoporosis. ALSO: Doctors get osteoporosis guidelines "I was having hip pain and went for x-rays and all of this," she said. "And now for two and a half years, I haven't been bothered at all."

General Features
Osteoporosis is accelerated bone loss. Normally, there is loss of bone mass with aging, perhaps 0.7% per year in adults. However, bone loss is greater in women past menopause than in men of the same age. The process of bone remodelling from resorption to matrix synthesis to mineralization normally takes about 8 monthsa slow but constant process. Bone in older persons just isn't as efficient as bone in younger persons at maintaining itselfthere is decreased activity of osteoblasts and decreased production of growth factors and bone matrix. This diagram illustrates changes in bone density with aging in women. The normal curve (A) steepens following menopause, but even by old age the risk for fracture is still low. A woman who begins with diminished bone density (B) even before menopause is at great risk, particularly with a more accelerated rate of bone loss. Interventions such as postmenopausal estrogen (with progesterone) therapy, the use of drugs such as the non-hormonal compound alendronate that diminishes osteoclast activity, and the use of diet and exercise regimens can help to slow bone loss (C) but will not stop bone loss completely or restore prior bone density. Diet and exercise have a great benefit in younger women to help build up bone density and provide a greater reserve against bone loss wiht aging. Risk factors for osteoporosis include:
  • Female sex
  • Age > 70 years
  • Caucasian or Asian race
  • Early onset of menopause
  • Longer postmenopausal interval

OSTEOPOROSIS:  Nutritional Causes, Prevention and Therapies
Many individuals rely on extra amounts of Calcium + Vitamin D when trying to treat and/or prevent
osteopenia (early stages of bone loss) or osteoporosis, and when unsuccessful, they generally resort
to using drugs specifically formulated to stop the progression of this disease.
Long-term effects of many of these medications are still unclear since increased bone mass doesn't
always translate into increased bone strength.  On the other hand, when analyzing individual reasons
for developing osteoporosis, it becomes clear that most factors can be resolved through a change in
lifestyle, or through individually -tailored nutritional supplementation.
Without the addition of weight-bearing exercise however, no program for the treatment or prevention
of osteoporosis can be considered complete.  Climbing stairs, running, lifting weights - and to some extent walking - are all among those exercises considered beneficial in maintaining bone density, in contrast to activities such as swimming, which are less helpful for osteoporosis.
