What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease that makes your bones weak and brittle. As result, the bones become more prone to break even with minor trauma or stress that would normally not result in a break. It may be caused due to long-term low calcium intake, estrogen deficiencies in women, and an inactive lifestyle.

  • Previously diagnosed with a bone fracture

  • Back pain worse with exercise

  • Diagnosed with hypogonadism (low sex hormone production)

  • I am taking or have taken oral diabetes medication

  • Aware I am thinner than peers

  • No periods for one year

  • History of connective tissue, autoimmune or rheumatic disease

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Osteoporosis

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Are you currently taking steroids?
