Connected Conditions

Several co-conditions are associated with osteoporosis. For example, people with osteoporosis may also have a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular conditions. This is because the same factors that lead to weakened bones, such as a lack of physical activity and poor diet, can also contribute to these other health issues. 

It is important for individuals with osteoporosis to take steps to manage their condition and reduce their risk of complications. This may include making dietary changes, increasing physical activity, taking medications to improve bone density, and taking steps to prevent falls. Regular monitoring and screening for osteoporosis can also help identify the condition early and allow for prompt treatment. See the articles below to learn more.
