World Osteoporosis Day - 20th October

When someone breaks a bone chances for another increase. 80% of people who have had at least one osteoporotic fracture are neither identified nor treated for osteoporosis. Currently, osteoporosis is vastly underdiagnosed and undertreated. Being a Doctor how do you work the patient up for osteoporosis?

OSTEOPOROSIS A condition in which bones become weak and brittle. The body constantly absorbs and replace bone tissue. With Osteoporosis, new bone creations doesn't keep up with old bone removal. Many people have no symptoms until they have a bone fracture. Treatment consists of supplements and diet modifications.

Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. Osteoporosis is more likely to occur in people who have: Low calcium intake. A lifelong lack of calcium plays a role in the development of osteoporosis. Low calcium intake contributes to diminished bone density, early bone lossand an increased risk of fractures.The most common fractures associated with osteoporosis occur at the hip, spine and wrist.

Yes suffering 1 fracture in osteoporosis increases the risk to twice for another fracture.

Older pts,debilitated pts women are screened for osteoporosis by bone marrow density

As per ayurvedic theory it's the vata among tridosha which cause osteoporosis.. Vata is predominant during oldage n thus osteoporosis or osteoarthritis were explained as vayosahaj vyadhi means it's normal physiological changes observed after the age of 60.. But nowadays it has become pathological condition and the reason behind is nutritional deficiencies and sedentary life style.. So being a doctor we have to educate and bring awareness in patients about the proper diet n exercise so that we can avoid early degeneration and have healthy life

be aware when your bone density scan shows signs of osteoporosis Healthy diet, weight- bearing excercise to prevent bone loss and strengthen the weak bones, Love your bones , protect your future

I am a pathologist so I interact with relatives, friends and workers as far as therapy is concerned. I normally request them to consult an orthopedic surgeon. I have been constantly writing that 60% of population cannot access medical facility. We have to first target this problem.
