Front cover image for Osteoporosis


Many older women and some older men suffer from osteoporosis, a condition in which bone mass loss is greater than normally occurs with aging. Osteoporotic bone is shaped like normal bone but calcium loss causes the inside to be more porous and spongy. Osteoporosis makes bones more likely to fracture during walking, coughing, or bathing. Doctors recommend mild exercise to strengthen bones, a balanced diet with foods high in calcium, and, in some cases, surgery or hormone replacement therapy
