Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease common in the elderly. It is characterized by a decrease in bone mass and density that may result in spontaneous or minor-trauma-related bone fractures. These can be very painful and lead to immobilization. Risk groups include post-menopausal women as well as many elderly men and patients who took cortisol over and extended time.
In addition to anamnesis, key diagnostic measures include radiology, lab checks, and bone densitometry tests. An effective and prophylactic therapy is possible if the disease is diagnosed in an early stage. We can advise on favorable lifestyle changes, diet, and physical exercise. Some cases may require medication.
