Osteoporosis is a bone disease where the production of new bone is not keeping up with the loss of old bone. This causes the bones to be fragile and brittle which can lead to fractures and falls. Anyone can be diagnosed with osteoporosis, but it is more commonly found in women, especially postmenopausal women. Improving diet and weight bearing activities and exercise can help decrease bone loss and even strengthen the bones.
