Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone structure that increases the risk of fractures. It happens when you lose too much bone, make too little bone or both. As a result, your bones become weak and may easily fracture. One in two women and one in four men will have a fracture due to osteoporosis.
We are here to help you feel better and to help strengthen your bones!
