Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become fragile and brittle from reduction of the mineralised material in the bone. It causes an overall weakening of the affected bones and increased risk of fracture. It is a silent progressive disease causing low bone density which leads to enhanced bone fragility. Osteoporosis also leads to a consequent increase in fracture risk, which could result in hip, spine or forearm fractures.

Low Bone Density (Osteopenia)

Low bone density is when your bone density is lower than normal, but not low enough to be considered osteoporosis. Osteopenia may mean that you have a greater chance of getting osteoporosis if you lose bone in the future because you have less bone to lose. People with LBD are more likely to break a bone compared to people with normal bone density
