Osteoporosis is a condition that shows weakness in bones, as the bones lose density and become porous. Deficiency of vitamin D and calcium are the common causes. Older adults have an increased risk of developing osteoporosis. They can develop fractures even while doing their routine activities such as standing and walking. The commonly affected bones are ribs, hips, and bone in the wrist. Bisphosphonates are taken to treat osteoporosis. They are taken orally or by injection.
