It is worth noting that osteoporosis or osteoporosis is a rheumatic disease caused by a decrease in bone density or thinning in the skeleton; Which causes severe pain, and makes a person more susceptible to fractures.
In order to know the causes of this disease and methods of prevention, it is necessary to know the role of metabolism in the body, how to regulate calcium, hormones, and vitamins, and the formation of the skeleton that protects the body.
This structure is also considered a storehouse of calcium, which has a vital function in cell activity, heart functions and communication between nerves, and this requires its presence in a sufficient proportion in the blood for this functional purpose. The skeleton loses its mass at a rate of 0.3% in men and 0.5% in women annually, and this loss occurs in the mid-twenties and the rate increases over the age of forty, where the rate of loss increases to 2-3% annually to make the bones brittle and thin, which exposes them to fracture easily.
