Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, causing bones to become thin and weak. This leads to an increased risk in broken bones, particularly of the hip, wrist and spine. 1.4 million Canadians have osteoporosis; 1 in 4 women and at least 1 in 8 men over the age of 50 have the disease. However, this disease can strike adults of any age. Osteoporosis is called the silent thief because it gradually robs bones of strength over time. Often there is no symptom until a fracture occurs. A bone mineral density test (BMD) is the most accurate test for diagnosing osteoporosis. To learn more about bone health, the risks of osteoporosis and healthy lifestyle choices go to www.osteoporosis.ca or call Kate at 519-500-1440.
