dc.description.abstractOsteoporosis means “porous bones.” It is a condition where the skeleton becomes fragile and results in broken bones under normal use. Osteoporosis is a “silent” condition that happens slowly over years. The rate of bone loss (“resorption”) exceeds the rate of new bone formation (“acretion”). Many times neither a person nor a doctor is aware of weakened bones until one breaks unexpectedly. Originally published: 2000
