Weak And Brittle Bones

Weak and brittle bones can occur due to medical conditions like osteoporosis, osteogenesis imperfecta, and brittle bone disease. In addition, due to aging, our body can reabsorb calcium and phosphate from bones instead of keeping them in bones, which can result in weak bones. Finally, collagen is a protein in the body that helps in the strengthening of bones. Therefore, the absence of collagen in the body also can make bones weak and brittle.
