Osteoporosis - diagnosis and treatment
Osteoporosis causesbones to become weak and fragile and more likely to break after a fall.
Around three million people in the UK have osteoporosis, and it contributes to more than 300,000 bone fractures a year.
Understanding osteoporosis treatment is vital for everyone, particularly if you have risk factors for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis treatment includes a multi-faceted programme of diet, lifestyle habits and osteoporosis medication, in order to prevent further bone loss and fractures.
