The disease occurs mostly in spine, hip, shoulder and forearm.Hip fractures are most common as nearly one-third of patients lose mobility and need long-term nursing. As patients are unable to move, prolonged complications arising out of bed immobilization ultimately results into fatality. The diagnostic measures of osteoporosis include X-ray and radiography tests that are further acknowledged with bone density test.
Osteoporosis is more prevalent in geriatric women than men; hence the suggested treatment is known as anti-osteoporosis which is intended to increase the bone mineral density and keeps a control over loss of bone tissue. Anti-osteoporosis reduces the risk of fractures by significant percent.
