Care For Bones


PREVENT FRACTURES
Osteoporosis is the slow deterioration of bone mineral tissues, which ultimately leads to fractures and severe breakage of bones. Osteoporosis is often called the ‘silent disease’ as bone loss occurs without any symptoms. People may not come to know that they have osteoporosis till their bones become so weak that a sudden strain, bump, fall or simple actions like coughing could lead to fractures.

In India, 1 in 6 women over 50 years old will break their femur (hip), while 1 in 4 will suffer severe fractures in one or more bones. The death rate from osteoporosis related fractures is greater than deaths caused by breast and ovarian cancer combined.
