Osteoporosis = Bone Loss

Osteoporosis is a bone disease. A reduction of the bone mass decreases the mechanic capacity of the bones in such a way that fractures (vertebral fractures, fractures of the neck of the femur) and bone deformation increase. The loss of bone mass is a normal symptom of old age. It only becomes problematic if the remaining quality of the bones is not sufficient enough to tolerate loads of everyday life.

Causes of Osteoporosis

  • Age-related reduction of sexual hormones
  • Lack of movement
  • Insufficient calcium intake
  • Insufficient renal function
  • Parathyroid disease
  • Long-term intake of cortisone
  • The maximum thickness of the bones was not reached as a result of a bad diet and insufficient movement in the first thirty years.

Nutrition and Osteoporosis

  • Calcium-rich diet
  • Vitamin-D-rich diet which is important for the utilisation of consumed calcium.
  • Foods rich in vitamin D such as fish enhance bone mineralization.
  • A diet low in phosphate and oxalic acid as phosphate and oxalic acid affect the intake of calcium.
  • Alcohol and nicotine prevent the intake of calcium by the intestines.

Treatment of Osteoporosis

  • Nutrition
  • Hormone therapy (Estrogens)
  • Avoid being underweight
  • A lot of physical activity and exercise increases bone mass and strengthens musculature.
  • Pain abatement
  • Physiotherapy
  • Influencing the bone metabolism
