Best Osteoporosis Doctor in Gurgaon

Osteoporosis literally means "holes in the bones." When a mineral such as calcium is depleted in the bones so rapidly that the body loses a replacement mineral. They lose density and strength and break easily.

Because there are often no signs or symptoms, most people don’t know they have osteoporosis until a bone breaks.. This is why osteoporosis is sometimes referred to as a "silent disease." Women are more prone to osteoporosis in their middle and older years, while men can be AFFECTED as well.

Sex hormones, such as oestrogen and testosterone, play an important role in bone strength maintenance in both men and women. The decrease in oestrogen that happens during menopause accelerates bone loss. The average woman loses up to 10% of her entire body bone mass over the first five years after menopause.
