Understanding Osteoporosis Medications Topic Guide
Osteoporosis Medications: Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and loss of bone tissue that leads to weak and fragile bones.
Bone Loss Bone loss occurs when bone resorption exceeds bone formation. Factors that may affect bone loss include diet, age, menopause, smoking, not exercising, and medications such as corticosteroids. Bone loss may be prevented by eating a high-calcium, high-vitamin D diet, exercising, not smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, and taking medications to prevent osteoporosis.
