Osteoporosis is a 'silent' condition that affects more women, than men, all over the world in large numbers leading to weak bones, causing easy fractures. Further, women lose up to 10% bone density during the first 5 years of hitting menopause. Alarmingly, this bone loss occurs with no prior warning signs. Therefore, is there a link between menopause and the onset of osteoporosis in women? Dr. Raju Vaishya, Senior Consultant Orthopedics & Joint Replacement Surgeon at Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi helps us understand how menopause affects osteoporosis and what we can do to prevent it.
