Osteoporosis – What You Need to Know

Got Calcium? May is Osteoporosis Month.


Osteoporosis is the thinning and loss of bone density over time.

Osteoporosis occurs when the bone mass decreases when bone resorption is greater than bone formation. As a result, the bone weakens and easily fractures especially in the hip and vertebrae. (Image credit: American Recall Center) #YWCR #osteoporosis #calcium #fractures
