"I've lost six inches in height and none of my clothes fit me anymore. Plus, it's hard to get clothes that look nice when my back is so hunched over." "This medication is so darned expensive. But if I want to maintain my independence, I can't afford to let my condition get worse either." "It seemed like it took forever for my bone to heal when it broke. I don't want that to happen again. It's so frustrating always worrying about falling." "If somebody had told me sooner what I know now about osteoporosis, none of this might be happening to me!" SOURCE: Based on comments made by a 70+ year old woman with osteoporosis. Ten million Americans have osteoporosis and another 18 million have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk of osteoporosis, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF). Osteoporosis often is called the "silent disease" because bone loss occurs without symptoms. The first sign of osteoporosis may be a fracture that occurs as a result of a weakened bone. A sudden strain or bump may be all it takes to break a bone.

    Details about its impact on women's health and nutrition, and research on calcium absorption, vitamins, aerobic exercises, and treatments such as calcium supplements are discussed.
    What is Osteoarthritis? The Scoop on Degenerative Joint Disease
    Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease that attacks joints such as the knees, fingers, and hips. Human joints have a protective layer between the bones called cartilage. Cartilage protects the bones from damage and is soft enough to absorb the stresses put on a joint. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage deteriorates. When this happens the bones that make up the joint rub together, causing pain and the gradual buildup of bony cysts. Who's at Risk?
    Osteoarthritis is a shockingly common degenerative joint disease: By age forty almost ninety percent of the American population displays some warning signs. By age sixty, fifty percent of the population has the disease to some degree, although degrees of severity vary widely among individuals. Although the condition in all its forms is generally seen as a disease of the elderly, it can strike at any age. Approximately 250,000 children in the United States live with osteoarthritis, most often due to trauma or injuries. Degenerative Arthritis and Human Joints
    Although it can affect any or all of the joints in the human body, arthritis most often strikes the weight-bearing joints. The hips and knees are very common targets for degenerative joint disease. The spine, elbows, ankles, shoulders, toes, fingers and wrists are also common targets.

    Osteoporosis and Paget's Disease Drug Database
    Osteoporosis is a common condition in the United States. In simple terms, osteoporosis is a weakening of the bones whereby they become brittle and easily fractured.
    Osteoporosis mostly affects post-menopausal Caucasian women although all women can be affected. Osteoporosis is less common in men than in women.
    There are conflicting theories about what causes osteoporosis. It is known that the chronic administration of certain drugs, such as corticosteroids like prednisone, may increase a person's risk of developing osteoporosis. If you are a woman taking prednisone or any steroid medication (including inhaled steroids for asthma or COPD) it is important that you get extra calcium in your diet. Most experts agree that a woman of child-bearing age should ingest 1,000 mg - 1,500 mg of calcium per day to reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. If you already have osteoporosis it is unlikely that ingesting lots of calcium will reverse the disease. Paget's disease is similar to osteoporosis in that it is characterized by a weakening of the bones. Paget's disease is a metabolic condition that causes bone cells to become weaker and have more blood vessels than normal bone. In Paget's disease the bone's structure is irregular which makes it prone to fracture even after a minor injury.

    Osteoporosis: Not Just An Elderly Disease It used to be that osteoporosis was considered a disease that affected only the elderly. We particularly associated osteoporosis with older women whose backs were slightly hunched over or those who could no longer stand up straight. Today, the truth is that an estimated 20 million American women suffer from osteoporosis, and 80 percent of them don't even know it.
    Osteoporosis is a chronic, progressive condition that steals bone from the body, leading to fractures of the hip, spine and wrist. Older people can suffer disability and even death from osteoporosis-related fractures. Alarmingly, one in two women and one in eight men will suffer from an osteoporosis-related fracture in his or her lifetime.
    Many people confuse osteoporosis with arthritis, and wait for swollen joints and discomfort before being tested. Even though osteoporosis is painless until a bone fracture occurs, it is important to find out how healthy your bones are now and if need be, adjust your lifestyle to avoid this brittle bone disease. The American Chiropractic Association recommends the following tips to maintain healthy bones:
    • Start a regular exercise program. Walking, skipping rope, jogging, playing racquet sports, swimming and aerobics are all helpful in reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Exercising for 20 minutes, three times a week, is helpful.

    What is Osteoporosis?
    Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by weak and brittle bones. Osteoporosis is a term to discribe porous bones. Sometimes the bones can become so brittle that activities like bending over, lifting a vacuum or coughing can cause a fracture. What causes Osteoporosis? In most cases, the brittle and weak bones are caused by low levels of calcium , phosphorous and other minerals in your bones. What are the Signs and Symptoms? In the early stages of bone loss, symptoms may not be noticible. However, as bones continue to weaken, some of the symptoms are: Back pain, Loss of height over time, with an accompanying stooped posture, Fracture of the vertebrae, wrists, hips or other bones. Bone Strength? The strength of your bones depends on their mass and density. Bone density partially depends on the amount of calcium, phosphorus and other minerals bones contain. When your bones contain less mineral, their strength is decreased. Activities like hiking swimming pilates , and running help improve bone density and lowers your risk of developing osteoporosis.

    KidsHealth Kids Health Problems of Grown-Ups
    "Drink your milk!" Why do grown-ups say this? One big reason is that milk contains calcium , an important ingredient in building strong bones . And if you start out with strong bones when you're a kid, those bones will serve you well your whole life. You want bones that are dense, which means they're strong all the way through. Why? Because as people age, bones naturally become less dense. In other words, everyone's going to lose some bone density as he or she ages, so you want to start out with as much as possible. Your big chance to build bones is when you're young. The process is pretty much over by the time you're 19. If someone has osteoporosis (say: oss -tee-oh-puh-ro-sis), the person's bones are now weakened because of this loss of bone density. Weak bones can break easier and the person may have other problems such as a stooped-over posture. Maybe you've seen an older woman who's a little hunched over. Older people - especially women, who are generally smaller and have bones that are lighter and less dense - are more likely to develop osteoporosis. Types of Osteoporosis
    The most common cause of osteoporosis is age. The older you get, the more bone loss you are likely to have, especially if you don't take in enough calcium.

    Who Is At Risk?
    Información en Español
    What Is It? Osteoporosis (os-TEA-oh-POOR-oh-sis) causes bones to lose strength and break easily as the person grows older. What Causes It? As you age, you lose a greater amount of old bone than your body can replace with new bone tissue; some medications such as corticosteroids may induce this loss. Treatment Options
    • Medications: Alendronate; Bisphosphonates such as alendronate, etidronate, clodronate, Fosamax, pamidronate, tilvdronate; Calcitonin nasal spray Calcium supplements Estrogen Exercise Sodium fluoride
    Who Is At Risk? Women are at greater risk than men because they start with less bone mass. They also lose bone mass more rapidly after menopause. Can It Be Prevented?
