Osteopenia: Considered the precursor to osteoporosis

Osteoporosis: Condition where bone mineral density decreases to the point that you have an increased likelihood of fractures. It is diagnosed by a DEXA scan, with a T score of less than -2.5.

Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone doesn't keep up with the removal of old bone. Half of women and a quarter of men over the age of 50 will suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture. Osteoporosis-related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist, or spine.

Medications, healthy diet, and weight-bearing exercise can help prevent bone loss or strengthen already-weak bones.

Physical signs of osteoporosis can include:

  • Back pain, caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra
  • Loss of height over time
  • A stooped posture
  • A bone fracture that occurs much more easily than expected

Risk factors for osteoporosis can include:

  • Age
  • Asian or Caucasian race
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Family history
  • Postmenopausal
  • Smaller body frame
  • History of gastrointestinal disorder
  • Eating disorder
