What are Osteoporosis and Osteopenia?

Osteoporosis is a characterised by porous and fragile bones that are prone to fractures.

Osteopenia refers to a condition of reduced bone mineral density (BMD) that results in weak bones and increases the risk of osteoporosis.

Most bone fractures are painful. Hips fractures require surgery and most patients require long term nursing care thereafter.  Fractures also increase mortality in the elderly.

Spinal fractures can result in back pain, loss of height and hunchback.
