Osteoporosis is a very prevalent disease for women above the age of 30. To spread awareness of this disease and promote good bone health, Techfest is conducting screening camps on the 20th of October PAN-India.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced, leading to weakness of the skeleton and increased risk of fracture, particularly of the spine, wrist and hip. Osteoporosis and associated fractures are an important cause of mortality and morbidity.
Osteoporosis is a global problem which is increasing in significance as the population of the world both grows and ages.
Worldwide, the lifetime risk for osteoporotic fractures in women is 30-50%. In men risk is 15-30%.
Osteoporosis is often called the "silent disease" because bone loss occurs without symptoms. In many cases, the first symptom is a broken bone. Patients with osteoporosis may not know that they have the disease until their bones become so weak that a sudden strain, bump, or fall causes a hip fracture or a vertebra to collapse.
BONES provide skeletal framework to our body and are dynamic in nature from childhood to old age.Diet and exercise are two important components to increase bone density which peaks around 30 years.Vitamin D and Calcium play an important role in the diet
to prevent osteoporosis related fractures in old age.
Milk and milk products like curd ,paneer,Ragi,nuts ,til seeds leafy vegetables are important sources of Calcium in the diet. Playing active sports,walking ,weight training are some important exercises to increase bone density.Exposure to sunlight is the best source of Vitamin D which is important for Calcium absorption .
