Osteoporosis Prevention & Maintenance

Share This Page

Osteoporosis compromises bone strength, resulting in an increased risk of fracture. In fact, half of all bone fractures are associated with osteoporosis.


Some of the risk factors associated with the development of osteoporosis include:

  • Advanced age
  • Female gender
  • Recent weight loss
  • Low body weight or a thin and slender build
  • History or family history of fractures
  • Tobacco use
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Lack of exercise
  • Eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Extended use of certain medications (e.g., corticosteroids, anticonvulsants, and thyroid medicine)
  • Asian or Caucasian race
