Osteoporosis Overview
Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and loss of bone tissue that may lead to weak and fragile bones. If you have osteoporosis, you have an increased risk for fractured bones (broken bones), particularly in the hip, spine, and wrist. Osteoporosis often was thought to be a condition that frail elderly women develop. However, the damage from osteoporosis begins much earlier in life. Because peak bone density is reached at approximately age 25 years, it is important to build strong bones by that age, so that the bones will remain strong later in life. Adequate calcium intake is an essential part of building strong bones. In the United States, nearly 10 million people already have osteoporosis. Another 18 million people have low bone mass that places them at an increased risk for developing osteoporosis. Eighty percent of those with osteoporosis are women. Of people older than 50 years, 1 in 2 women and 1 in 8 men are predicted to have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime. According to the World Health Organization, the prevalence of osteoporosis among US white women past menopause is estimated to be 14% in those aged 50-59 years, 22% in those aged 60-69 years, 39% in those aged 70-79 years, and 70% in those aged 80 years and older. Significant risk has been reported in people of all ethnic backgrounds. White and Asian racial groups, however, are at a greater risk.

Dr. Felicia Cosman: The facts about osteoporosis
Dr. Felicia Cosman, an osteoporosis specialist and the Medical Director of the Clinical Research Center at Helen Hayes Hospital, joined the chat room on Wednesday to discuss osteoporosis and osteoporosis testing. CNN: Who needs to be concerned about osteoporosis? COSMAN: Everyone needs to be concerned about osteoporosis. This is an extremely common condition. About 1 in 2 women will have an osteoporosis-related fracture. Between 1 in 5 and 1 in 8 men will have an osteoporosis-related fracture. MORE STORIES Campaign urges osteoporosis testing CHAT PARTICIPANT: How much calcium does each age group need? COSMAN: Approximately 1200 milligrams, or at least that, for all individuals above the age of 50. Below that, 1000 milligrams a day for adults is probably sufficient. In practice, I go with 1200 for most people seeing me, because most are post-menopausal and above the age of 50. It's important to realize that the calcium target amount includes what's in the diet, plus a calcium or vitamin supplement if it's required. But people who get 1200 milligrams in their diet don't have to take a calcium supplement. CHAT PARTICIPANT: Does osteoporosis affect your entire skeletal body, as opposed to just one area?

Order Copies Online, Quantity: 50(limit) Click to open document as PDF Osteoporosis: The Bone Thief Bone is living tissue. To keep bones strong, your body is always breaking down old bone and replacing it with new bone tissue. As people enter their forties and fifties, more bone is broken down than is replaced. A close look at the inside of bone shows something like a honeycomb. When you have osteoporosis, the spaces in this honeycomb grow larger. And the bone that forms the honeycomb gets smaller. The outer shell of your bones also gets thinner. All this loss makes your bones weaker. Who Has Osteoporosis? Millions of Americans have osteoporosis. They are mostly women, but more than 2 million men also have this disease. White and Asian women are most likely to have osteoporosis. Other women at great risk include those who:
  • have a family history of the disease, have broken a bone while an adult, had surgery to remove their ovaries before their periods stopped

But the talk show host recently got a new perspective on her health after a routine visit to her doctor. "We're going through medical history, and he noticed that my mom had osteoporosis," Vieira said. "He said, 'Given your age, I really think that it would be wise for you to have a bone mineral density test.'" According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, a bone mineral density test is the only way to diagnose this disease, which usually has no early visible symptoms. Osteoporosis is characterized by a deterioration of bone tissues, which can make bones more susceptible to fractures.

  • 28 million people are affected in the United States. Women are affected four times as often as men. One out of two women and one in eight men over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime.
What is Osteoporosis? Osteoporosis is a disease of the skeletal system. The bones lose density, become brittle and prone to fracture. It is the major cause of bone fractures in older people, especially postmenopausal women. What causes it? A certain amount of bone density is lost as a part of aging. During the mid-30s, everyone begins to lose very small amounts of bone. Bone loss accelerates at menopause, with some women losing up to 30% of bone mass in the first five years. There are certain risk factors that increase a person's chance of having osteoporosis. Some are unavoidable such as being a post-menopausal female, being thin or "small boned" and aging. However many are avoidable. Smoking, alcohol use, long term use of corticosteroids, lack of exercise and low intake of dietary calcium all can contribute to the development of osteoporosis.

What is osteoporosis?
In osteoporosis, the inside of the bones becomes porous from a loss of calcium (see the picture below). This is called losing bone mass. Over time, this weakens the bones and makes them more likely to break. Osteoporosis is much more common in women than in men. This is because women have less bone mass than men, tend to live longer and take in less calcium, and need the female hormone estrogen to keep their bones strong. If men live long enough, they are also at risk of getting osteoporosis later in life. Return to top
What are the signs of osteoporosis?
You may not know you have osteoporosis until you have serious signs. Signs include broken bones, low back pain or a hunched back. You may also get shorter over time because osteoporosis can cause your vertebrae (the bones in your spine) to collapse. These problems tend to occur after a lot of bone calcium has already been lost.

Guidelines to prevent, diagnose and treat osteoporosis expected
November 5, 1998
Web posted at: 11:52 a.m. EDT (1552 GMT) WASHINGTON (CNN) - The National Osteoporosis Foundation, in collaboration with a broad, multi-disciplinary coalition of clinical experts, is expected to announce Thursday the first official guidelines to help prevent, diagnose, and treat osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. The guidelines focus on diet, exercise and drug treatments. They are intended for physicians and offer concise recommendations in regards to prevention, risk assessment, diagnosis and treatment. They recommend counseling all post-menopausal women at high risk of developing the disease and suggests using bone mineral density as the standard form of testing to determine a woman's risk and severity of the disease. The guidelines recommend patients get at least 1200 milligrams of calcium and 400-800 IU (international units) of Vitamin D daily. They recommend women do regular weight-bearing or strength-training exercises to reduce the risk of falls and fractures and avoid drinking alcohol and smoking.

What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to break more easily. It is most common in women. It begins in women around the time of menopause. The major cause is lack of estrogen. Osteoporosis can lead to painful fractures (broken bones), most often in the hips, backbone or arms. Return to top
How can I keep from getting osteoporosis?
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Drink only moderate amounts of alcohol.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Take extra calcium and vitamin D.

What is raloxifene and what does it do?
Raloxifene (brand name: Evista) is a medicine that helps prevent and treat osteoporosis. It can only be used after menopause. It slows bone loss and slightly increases normal bone growth. It lowers total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels in the blood. It doesn't raise triglyceride or HDL ("good") cholesterol levels. Raloxifene is being tested to see if it lowers the risk of heart disease.

Prevention of Osteoporosis and Fractures
University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita Wichita, Kansas
O steoporosis and low bone density are significant risk factors for morbidity and mortality in older adults. These conditions are characterized by poor bone strength and are associated with an increased risk of fractures from even slightly traumatic events, such as falls from standing height or lower. Vertebral fractures are the hallmark of osteoporosis, but hip, Colles' and other fractures are also common. Low bone density may be a silent condition until a complication occurs. Increased attention is being given to the early diagnosis and treatment of low bone density as well as the prevention of fractures. Several medications have recently been labeled for the treatment of osteoporosis, but their marginal benefits require careful consideration of their cost. Osteoporosis and Osteopenia As commonly defined, osteoporosis is a condition in which bone mineral density is 2.5 standard deviations below the average bone density in gender-matched young adults. Osteopenia is a less advanced state of low bone mineral density. The risk of fracture increases two to three times for every 10 percent drop in bone density.
