Main Causes of Osteoporosis
To grow and mature normally, bone must be continually stressed and strained. Any condition that results in immobility will cause osteoporosis of the affected limb. This is common after severe fractures, and accident victims who have been in plaster for several months require careful physiotherapy if they are to avoid further fractures. This is even more true of astronauts, who have spent prolonged periods in the weightlessness of space. Several drugs, including steroids and heparin, have been known to induce osteoporosis. For this reason it is important that patients on these treatments to maintain a high calcium intake. Women suffer from osteoporosis because their ovaries no longer secrete estrogen, which helps to maintain the density of bone. The degree to which they are affected depends on two things: Their age at the menopause and the density of the original bone. For this reason, it is important to ensure that calcium intake is adequate, particularly in the last 10-15 years before the menopause. Bone density can be measured and this gives a very good indication of the likelihood of fractures occurring in later life. Unfortunately the test if not yet generally available. The disorder is generally painless and often the first indication is when a minor injury or ‘fall’ causes a broken bone.
