Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease. The disease causes bones to become thin and porous.  These bones are weak and more likely to fracture or break.  1 in 4 women and at least 1 in 8 men over 50 have osteoporosis.  Osteoporosis is often known as "the silent thief" because it happens without symptoms.  Osteoporosis can affect how you look, how you feel about yourself, and your ability to move around.

There are things you can do to prevent, delay, or manage osteoporosis.  These include proper amounts of calcium and vitamin D, exercising regularly to stay strong, taking your medications as prescribed and protecting yourself from falls.  At Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics we can provide you with the information you need to manage, prevent or delay osteoporosis.
