Osteoporosis


Osteoporosis - Better Health Channel -open

Osteoporosis occurs when bones lose their strength and density. They become fragile, weak and brittle and can fracture (break) more easily. Osteoporosis particularly affects women after menopause and in their later years, although some men are also affected. Activity and a healthy diet rich in calcium and vitamin D can help prevent osteoporosis.
