Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoprosis is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a type of disease that results in thin bones. As a result, people who have it are at an increased risk of fractures, as the bones have become fragile. Although osteoporosis can occur in any bone, it is most common in the hip, wrist, and spine. For women, bone loss is fastest in the first few years after menopause, and it continues into the postmenopausal years. Men in their 50s do not experience the same rapid loss of bone mass that women do in the years following menopause. By age 65 or 70, however, men and women lose bone mass at about the same rate.
