From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Osteoporosis is a disease of bone in which the amount of bone is decreased and the strength of trabecular bone is reduced, cortical bone becomes thin and bones are susceptible to fracture . It is defined according to the bone mineral density (BMD) as measured by DEXA : a BMD of 2.5 standard deviations below the peak bone mass (20-year-old person standard) is considered osteoporosis. While treatment modalities are becoming available, prevention is still the most important way to reduce fracture.
Signs and symptoms
Osteoporotic fractures are those that occur under slight amount of stresses that would not normally lead to fractures in nonosteoporotic people. Typical fractures occur in the vertebral column hip and wrist . Collapse of vertebrae leads to chronic pain and characteristic bent statue, while the fractures of the long bones acutely impair mobility and may require

Vogin, MD Indeed, the year 2000 was a very good year for wine makers and not just because it brought a bumper crop of cabernets, zinfandels, and chardonnays. Evidence of the far-reaching health benefits of wine continued to pour in from researchers around the world. Here's a review of the good news for wine makers and wine lovers: A Healthier Heart Several reports in 2000 confirmed the glad tidings that wine in moderation, of course reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks. In the September issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine , for instance, Swedish researchers at the Karolinska Institute reported that, compared to teetotalers, light drinkers who consumed wine cut their risk of dying prematurely by almost one third, and wine drinkers as a group had significantly lower mortality from cardiovascular disease and cancer. Actually, drinking any kind of alcoholic beverage helped, the scientists found. But by far the biggest benefit accrued to wine drinkers. What's more, scientists are beginning to understand how wine may bestow its salutary benefits. For starters, according to findings published in the January 2000 issue of

134. The Physician And Sportsmedicine: Osteoporosis
Regular exercise contributes to the prevention of osteoporosis by helping patientsattain Optimal osteoporosis management involves a multimodal program,
Warren A. Katz, MD, with Carl Sherman
Series Editor: Nicholas A. DiNubile, MD THE PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE - VOL 26 - NO. 2 - FEBRUARY 98 In Brief: Physical activity promotes increases in bone mineral density or reductions in bone loss in young, premenopausal, and postmenopausal women, making exercise a key strategy for preventing and treating osteoporosis. Alongside weight-bearing exercise and resistance training, treatment may also include therapy with estrogen, alendronate, or calcitonin, adequate calcium and vitamin D intake, and measures to prevent falls. O steoporosis is a metabolic bone disease characterized by a loss of bone mass and disturbance of bone architecture. The loss of calcium and the alteration of bone structure combine to weaken bone in patients who have osteoporosis. This condition affects about 25 million Americans, 80% of them women, and is responsible for 1.5 million fractures per year (1). A half million of these fractures occur in the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae and often result in a deformed, hunched posture that is associated with chronic back pain and poor self-image. Another quarter million fractures annually are hip fractures that result in a 15% to 20% mortality rate and a high incidence of disability (2). Overall, the direct and indirect annual cost of osteoporosis is estimated at $18 billion per year (3). Osteoporosis is the culmination of a process that typically begins in the third and fourth decades of life, but starts earlier in certain patients, such as athletes who have the triad of disordered eating, amenorrhea, and osteoporosis. In women, bone mass decreases approximately 1% per year from age 40 through menopause; after menopause and the loss of estrogen, bone loss and deterioration accelerate markedly for about 10 years and then level off. Though the average woman loses 15% of bone mass within 5 years of menopause (with prolonged bedrest, the loss can increase to 40%), not all women develop osteoporosis according to the World Health Organization (WHO) definition. The WHO proposes (4) that women are osteoporotic if they have bone densities more than 2.5 standard deviations (SD) below the mean density for young adults. However, it is important to emphasize that the risk of osteoporosis is actually a continuum that begins at less than 2.5 SD from that mean.

Exercise for Osteoporosis
Warren A. Katz, MD, with Carl Sherman
Series Editor: Nicholas A. DiNubile, MD THE PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE - VOL 26 - NO. 2 - FEBRUARY 98 F or patients who have osteoporosis, exercise is an essential part of treatment. Just as regular workouts build muscle, they also maintain and may even increase bone strength. By strengthening your muscles and bones and improving your balance, exercise can reduce the risk of falls and resulting fractures. Exercise works well with estrogen or other medications that increase bone density and strength. Exercise, medication, and proper diet combat osteoporosis more effectively together than any one treatment alone could do. Remember that you're never too old to exercise. Here are some tips on how to start a program of weight-bearing exercise and resistance training that will benefit your bones and muscles and also help your general health.
Weight-Bearing Exercise
For most people who have osteoporosis, brisk walking is ideal. It can be done anywhere, requires no special equipment, and carries minimal risk of injury. If walking is too difficult or painful for you, workouts on a stationary exercise cycle are a good alternative. The full benefits of walking come from a regular scheduleat least 15 to 20 minutes 3 to 4 days per week. But if you haven't been active for years, you may need to start modestly. Start at whatever level is comfortable for you. Five-minute walks are fine at first, but try increasing their length by 1 minute every other time until you reach the optimal exercise level.

    Scientists have known for years that the isoflavones in soy products can depress thyroid function Elaine Hollingsworth, author of Take Control of Your Health and Escape the Sickness Industry. Dr. Mercola on mammography : "Screening mammography poses significant and cumulative risks of breast cancer for premenopausal women. The routine practice of taking four films of each breast annually results in approximately 1 rad (radiation absorbed dose) exposure, about 1,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray. The premenopausal breast is highly sensitive to radiation, each 1 rad exposure increasing breast cancer risk by about 1 percent, with a cumulative 10 percent increased risk for each breast over a decade's screening. These risks are even greater for younger women subject to "baseline screening."

According to current estimates, approximately 1.4 million Canadians are affected by osteoporosis, with 2 million more at risk for the disease. Approximately one in four women and one in eight men over the age of 50 will be affected by this condition. In its early stages, osteoporosis tends to be a "silent" condition - it has no symptoms. However, because it greatly increases a person's risk of painful fractures (broken bones), especially in the hip, spine and and wrist osteoporosis can have a devastating effect on people's lives. Few people realize that they have osteoporosis until their bone health is affected to the point that their bones may be at risk for breaking more easily. In many cases, being aware of good bone-health habits and making the necessary lifestyle changes earlier in life may help to avoid developing osteoporosis, or having it become a significant health risk. Understanding the risk factors for developing osteoporosis and making some important lifestyle changes may help individual maintain good bone health and avoid potential injuries to bones in future.

I f you think your kids need milk to grow strong bones, it's time for a second opinion. A comprehensive review article published in Pediatrics A major study shows that the amount of calcium girls consumed during the teen years had no impact on bone strength. Exercise, however, had a huge positive effect. For strong bones, kids need weight-bearing activity, sunlight, and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. And there's healthy calcium in fortified juices, soymilk, greens, beans, and many other foods that avoid milk's problems. home about us contact us The site does not provide medical or legal advice.
