Affordable Osteoporosis Treatment in India

Osteoporosis is a kind of disease in human being, that causes bones to become fragile and brittle and very susceptible to fractures. These fractures, occur typically in the hip, spine, and wrist. A fracture or broken bone can have a huge affect on your life, causing disability, pain, or loss of independence. Fractures can make it very difficult to do daily activities without help. Osteoporosis treatment exists to prevent bone lose and build strong bones. Osteoporosis is diagnosed when bone density has decreased to the point where fractures occur with mild stress.

Types of osteoporosis:

  • High turnover osteoporosis: This occurs in 5 - 20% of women, most often between the ages of 50 and 75. This is because of the    sudden postmenopausal decrease in estrogen levels, which results in a rapid depletion of calcium from the skeleton.  It is  associated with fractures of the hip, wrist, or forearm caused by falls or minor accidents.
  •  Low turnover osteoporosis: This occurs with age in everyone to some degree. The results when the process of resorption and formation of bone are no longer coordinated, and bone breakdown overcomes bone building. This affects both men and women and is primarily associated with leg and spinal fractures.

Osteoporosis Symptoms

The Osteoporosis symptom associated with osteoporotic fractures usually is pain; the location of the pain depends on the location of the fracture. Pain almost anywhere in the spine can be caused by fractures of the bones of the spine. The pain may occur suddenly or slowly over time. There may be a loss of height (as much as 6 inches) over time. The symptoms of osteoporosis in men are similar to the symptoms of osteoporosis in women.

Causes of Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease. Osteoporosis occurs when the body fails to form enough new bone, when too much existing bone is reabsorbed by the body, or both. Important chemicals such as estrogen, testosterone, parathyroid hormone, and vitamin D and blood factors that affect cell growth are involved with this process. Changes in levels of any of these factors can play a role in the development of osteoporosis.

Normally osteoporosis is found in females. The factors that give raise to the development of osteoporosis are:

  •    Smoking
  •    Hereditary
  •    Early fractures
  •    Alcohol consumption
  •    Insufficient Calcium diet
  •    Lack of exercise 
Important methods for preventing osteoporosis include diet, osteoporosis exercise, and not smoking.

  •  Diet : An optimal diet for preventing or treating osteoporosis includes consuming an adequate number of protein and calories as well as optimal amounts of calcium and vitamin D, which are essential in helping to maintain proper bone formation and density.

  • osteoporosis exercise: exercise may decrease the tendency to fall due to weakness. Physical activity reduces the risk of hip fracture in older women  as a result of increased muscle strength.

  • Smoking: Stopping smoking is strongly recommended for bone health because smoking cigarettes is known to speed bone loss.
