Osteoporosis

 

Osteoporosis basically means porous (hollow) bones. Osteoporosis has many different causes including family history, other diseases/illnesses, treatments for other illnesses, lifestyle factors etc. Osteoporosis is known as a silent disease because usually the first sign of it is a low trauma fracture e.g. a broken bone due to a trip and fall.
