General Information About Osteoporosis

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a progressive degenerative condition of bone mineral, density, mass, and strength. Eventually, the bone becomes weak and thin, making it susceptible to fractures and breaks. Wrists, hips, and spinal vertebrae are the most common areas for damage, and women are the most vulnerable group. There is currently no cure for osteoporosis, but it can be slowed or limited with diet, medications, lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplements. Prevention of osteoporosis through diet is where MyFoodMyHealth can help you.
