Did you know?

  • That both scientific and statistical studies have proven that osteoporosis affects one out of every 4 women after the age of 45 and this is as a result of several factors including: decreased level of the hormone estrogen, lack of calcium intake in food in addition to lack of regular exercise.
  • Other reasons that may lead to osteoporosis include increased activity of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, steroid therapy, excessive smoking and alcohol and studies have also shown that there are genetic factors that may lead to osteoporosis in some cases.
