Osteoporose

  • O que é Osteoporose?

    Osteoporosis is a loss of Calcium in your bones. Calcium is a mineral that comes from the foods we eat.

  • Sintomas de Osteoporose

    There are no sensory symptoms such as pain associated with osteoporosis unless a bone fractures (typically a hip or vertebrae), which is common among severe osteoporotic patients.

  • Causas de Osteoporose

    The primary cause of osteoporosis is a lack of physical activity. Our bones need the physical stress of gravity and the pulling forces of our muscles, ligaments and tendons to maintain healthy and strong bones. Post-menopausal women have lower levels of oestrogen (estrogen) in their blood which contributes to the loss of bone calcium. Combine that with a lack of physical exercise and you have a recipe for advanced osteoporosis that gets worse with age. Maintaining physical activity and eating the proper calcium rich foods will help to slow down the process.
