Causes of Osteoprosis

Were you looking for information about the Causes of Osteoporosis? Causes of osteoprosis is a common misspelling of causes of osteoporosis.
 
There are several possible causes of osteoporosis, depending on the type of osteoporosis (primary osteoporosis or secondary osteoporosis). Primary osteoporosis may be caused by age-related bone loss or by other, unknown causes. The loss of bone mass that occurs in secondary osteoporosis can be caused by certain lifestyle factors, diseases, or medications. The majority of people with osteoporosis have at least one secondary cause. It is also thought that race and ethnicity may play a role in the development of osteoporosis, but more research is needed to determine this connection.
