Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the bone, making is so brittle that even a fall or mild stress like bending might fracture it. The symptoms include back pain, loss of height over time, easy bone fractures, and stooped posture. As people age, the bone is lost faster than it is created, which results in osteoporosis. Postmenopausal women are at a higher risk of developing this condition. The other risk factors for developing osteoporosis are low sex hormones, overactive thyroid, low calcium intake, eating disorder, long-term use of steroids, celiac disease, cancer, multiple myeloma, and rheumatoid arthritis. The bones in the hip, wrist, and spine are commonly affected by osteoporosis-related fracture. The commonly used medicine for treating osteoporosis is bisphosphonates like Alendronate and Ibandronate.
