Once an osteoporosis has been detected it is hard to cure it completely, because it is difficult to "rebuild" the bone that has once been weakened by osteoporosis Answer So, preventing the disease is as much important as treating it. 1 Quit smoking 2 3 4 Balanced diet No alcohol Calcium and Vitamin D 4 Lifestyle Changes There is a reason why doctors and health experts recomment exercising in order to prevent & treat osteoporosis When you exercise you don't just build muscles

About half of all women over the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra (bones of the spine). Osteoporosis occurs when the body fails to form enough new bone, when too much old bone is reabsorbed by the body, or both. The leading causes of osteoporosis are a drop in estrogen in women at the time of menopause and a drop in testosterone in men. Women over age 50 and men over age 70 have a higher risk for osteoporosis. Causes As you age, calcium and phosphate may be reabsorbed back into the body from the bones, which makes the bone tissue weaker. This can result in brittle, fragile bones that are more prone to fractures, even without injury. 1 2 3 Being confined to a bed
