Welcome to the Osteoporosis Channel
Osteoporosis is a disease affecting bone structure. When bone is being lost faster than it can be replaced, the bones become more porous, which can lead to an increased risk for fractures, especially of the hip, spine, and wrist. While the disease is more common in women, both sexes are affected by it.
Welcome to the Osteoporosis Health Channel by eMedTV. We hope you find this channel to be a useful tool, providing the information you need. It contains a collection of articles covering all aspects of osteoporosis, from risk factors for the condition to common symptoms to treatment options. And because osteoporosis is a disease that can be treated – and oftentimes even prevented -- we also have articles describing ways to keep bones healthy and strong. Information on bone density and bone density scans is provided as well.
You can begin your eMedTV osteoporosis experience by clicking any of the featured links located on this page. Or, you can use the health topic section on the left side to find a specific topic of interest. If you do not find the osteoporosis information that you are looking for in these two locations, use the search box at the top of this page.
