Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoporotic is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis, a condition that can affect men and women, occurs when the bone in the body is lost at a faster rate than the body can replace it. This bone disease results in brittle bones that are more susceptible to fracture. Most fractures resulting from osteoporosis occur in the spine, wrist, and hip. Possible signs of this disease include hunched posture, a protruding stomach, and height loss. If you are diagnosed with osteoporosis, a healthcare provider may recommend a certain diet, exercise plan, or medications.
