About Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the inside of bones. It causes bones to become fragile, so they break more easily. It is called the silent disease because there are no signs or symptoms prior to a person breaking (fracturing) bones. The effects of undiagnosed/untreated osteoporosis can be devastating, and therefore the prevention and early detection of this disease is so important.
