Osteoporosis
by Dr. Naseem Sheikh Bookmark and Share
 

I was reading on a website and it seems very correct that a good author provides good, adorable book to read similarly a good human being caring about his/her looks healthy. Diseased and careless attitude with health always result in form of negative impact on human being.

Osteoporosis is now common for all; everyone has cells that remove old bone and other cells that rebuild new bone. This ongoing process is part of what keeps our bones strong. When one person has post-menopausal osteoporosis, bone-removing cells cause bone loss at too faster rate. Almost 5-7 years after menopause risk of fracturing increases almost 20% due to thinness of bones.


Osteoporosis fracture. Coloured X-ray of the hip of an elderly woman with a fractured femur (lower right, red) caused by osteoporosis (brittle bone disease). The round femur head articulates with the pelvis at the hip socket (centre). The femur (thigh bone) is fractured at the neck between the head and shaft of the bone. Osteoporosis causes a loss in bone density, making the bones thinner, more brittle and more likely to break. In this case the femur fractured by a fall. Osteoporosis is most common in women after the menopause as their ovaries no longer produce the oestrogen hormones which help to maintain bone mass.

Almost every person in his or her late forty have chances to have weak bones although female have more common chance for its attack. Main reason are lack of awareness, imbalance of hormone, calcium deficiency, random intake of wrong food, excessive dieting. It is greater than the incidence of heart attacks, stroke, and breast cancer combined. 80% of patients with fracture are not screened for osteoporosis.

Bone loss can also be related to chronic inflammation (caused by body dehydration and many other factors) and by an overly acidic inner body pH (of 7.0 or less). Our inner body should have a lightly alkaline pH (greater than 7.0). Bone dehydration (insufficient body water) can cause both chronic inflammation and an acidic inner body. Dehydration is usually alleviated by drinking at least eight glasses of water daily. Since most drinking water is slightly alkaline, drinking it tends to make your body less acid.

Post-menopausal osteoporosis is the most common form of osteoporosis. It affects many women after menopause.

World Osteoporosis Day is observed annually on October 20, launching a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and related muscular skeletal diseases.

The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) released a new report, revealing approximately 80 percent of patients treated in clinics or hospitals following a fracture are not screened for osteoporosis or risk of future falls. Left untreated, these patients are at high risk of suffering secondary fractures and facing a future of pain, disfigurement, long-term disability and even early death.

Osteoporosis risks can be reduced with lifestyle changes and sometimes medication, avoidance from Alcohol and smoking, proper nutrition has an important and complex role in maintenance of good bone high protein containing food increase uric level which further form uric acid and loss of bone and at the end most important many soft drinks contains phosphoric acid which plays important role in reduction of bone size and width so we keep strict check on it.
