What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a condition where the bone loses its strength. It is the result of a loss of calcium in the core of the bones. It tends to strike women in the post-menopause years because of hormonal changes that affect the bones. However, it can strike men as well and even younger adults who have other health conditions or risk factors. Check out melioguide.com to find out about risk factors.
