Osteoporosis: What is Osteoporosis?

Before we get started, let’s understand what is osteoporosis. Eileen explains, “Osteoporosis is a condition that leads to fragile bones. If you have osteoporosis, you have an increased risk for fractured bones (broken bones). Normal bone is composed of protein, collagen, and calcium, all of which give bone its strength. Bones that are affected by osteoporosis can break (fracture) with relatively minor injury that normally would not cause a bone to fracture.”
