We are all familiar with frailty, broken bones, loss of height and the curved back that are often regarded as a normal part of ageing. We now know that in fact these are symptoms of a disease called Osteoporosis which can be prevented if steps are taken earlier in life.

What Causes Osteoporosis ?
Bone is a living tissue. There are two main types of cell in bone, the osteoclasts which destroy old bone and the osteoblasts which make newer stronger bone (bone formation). Osteoporosis occurs when there is an imbalance between these two processes. The osteoclasts become more active and the osteoblasts less active so more bone is removed and less formed. People with Osteoporosis lose more bone than they make.
