OSTEOPOROSIS A SILENT DANGER


Osteoporosis a silent danger | Bangkok International Hospital

Today osteoporosis is a condition that affects people the world over, with numbers continuing to rise, due to the growing number of elderly in super-aged societies. Osteoporosis is considered a “silent danger” because its symptoms are not evident in the early stages; diagnosis is only made after a fall and a resultant fracture. Osteoporosis causes bones to become brittle and weak due calcium and vitamin deficiencies.   This makes it harder for bones to withstand pressure (weight), and some individuals may experience a loss of height of up to 3 cm, others may experience back pain from falls or lifting heavy objects. People with osteoporosis will find that their bones are extremely brittle and may fracture from minimal impact or sharp twist movements, including sneezing. Spine fractures can occur easily which may and can lead to paralysis and a poorer quality of life.
