​One of the major causes of disability among American women is osteoporosis. Affecting more than 28 million women, it is called a “silent” disease as there are no warning signs or symptoms.


Osteoporosis means “porous bone” and is characterized by the weakening of your bones, causing them to become fragile and breakable at the slightest bump or fall. While osteoporosis can affect men and women, women are four times more likely to develop this disease, especially after menopause.


Early detection is very important in the treatment of osteoporosis. A bone density test is used in diagnosis osteoporosis.
