Face up to osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is an insidious process; the bones become more and more fragile. At the end of the process fractures can occur all of a sudden. The result is acute pain and limited mobility. Statistics have shown that every third woman suffers from bone fractures caused by osteoporosis.
Beginning at the age of 30 the bones become more fragile at a rate of 1% per year. Obviously, that is genetically determined. That is also true for men. For women the reduction of estrogens plays an additional role as it supports the deterioration of the bones. The rate can increase to up to 4% per year. At the same time an estrogen deficiency symptom is a limited production of vitamin D and a calcium resorption. Therefore, the reconstruction of the bones is limited as well.
