FAQ's For Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition which causes the thinning of bones, resulting in painful and frequent fractures. Bones become so weak and brittle that even the mildest movement like walking or coughing can result in fractures most commonly of the hip, wrist and spine

Osteoporosis is most commonly a condition of aging, as new bone tissue is not formed fast enough to replace old bone, causing bone density loss

There is no known cure for osteoporosis. However, treatment can help prevent further damage to the bones.

Biophosphonates such as Alendronate (Binosto or Fosamax), Risedronate (Actonel or Atelvia), Ibandronate (Boniva), and Zoledronic acid (Reclast or Zometa) are most commonly recommended.

The severity of cases depends on the age, sex, race, family history, body frame and lifestyle habits of the specific patient.

Osteoporosis is a condition which causes the thinning of bones, resulting in painful and frequent fractures. Bones become so weak and brittle that even the mildest movement like walking or coughing can result in fractures most commonly of the hip, wrist and spine. It is a condition of aging, as new bone tissue is not formed fast enough to replace old bone, causing bone density loss. It is most often seen in white or Asian women post-menopause.

Symptoms of osteoporosis include:
Loss of height over time
Back pain often caused by fractured or collapsed vertebrae
Hunched posture
Bones that break very easily

Osteoporosis is often brought on by the aging process. At the age of 20, new bones are frequently and punctually replacing old bones. By the age of 30, human beings reach peak bone mass and depend mostly on the amount of bone mass achieved in their youth to maintain adequate bone density throughout old age. As the body reaches 60 to 70 years, growth significantly drops, and bone mass is lost.

Certain unavoidable risk factors include:
Age (The risk of developing osteoporosis increases with age.)
Sex (Women are much more likely to develop osteoporosis than men)
Race (People of white or Asian descent are at greatest risk.)
Family history
Body frame size (People having smaller body frames tend to run a greater risk of developing osteoporosis because they may have less bone mass to bank on as they age.)

Osteoporosis can also be brought on by a number of other factors including:
Hormone levels
Dietary factors
Steroids and other medications
Medical conditions like celiac disease, kidney or liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lupus, multiple myeloma, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer
Poor lifestyle choices like smoking, excess alcohol consumption, and a sedentary lifestyle

Treatment of osteoporosis begins with assessing how much risk the patient has. If they are categorized as low-risk, he or she may not even require medication, and doctors instead can focus on bone strengthening and reducing fall risks. If medication is required, however, the following may be prescribed to increase bone density:
Biophosphonates such as Alendronate (Binosto or Fosamax), Risedronate (Actonel or Atelvia), Ibandronate (Boniva), and Zoledronic acid (Reclast or Zometa)
Monoclonal antibody medications like denosumab (Prolia, Xgeva), which is delivered as an injection
Bone-building medications like Teriparatide (Forteo), Abaloparatide (Tymlos), and Romosozumab (Evenity)
Hormone-related therapy

Besides regular treatment, there are many supplements like soy, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous, as well as vitamins for bone health such as vitamin C, D, and K12 that can aid in increasing bone density. Herbsdaily offers a wide range of supplements effective in treating and preventing osteoporosis.
