Awareness about Osteoporosis in Women is increasing in KSA

RiyadhAccording to the Saudi Diabetes and Endocrine Association in the Eastern Province, 30-50% of Saudi women over the age of 40 years develop . This disease occurs in women by double than men. The goal of the association is to increase public awareness about osteoporosis and its impact on the quality of life for those affected by it. Elderly women suffered from a minor fall have hip fractures which takes long time to recover. Women must be aware about the risk factors and preventive measures for osteoporosis; so authorities do more efforts to achieve this purpose.

This disease is silently dangerous because it spreads in the bones; often without even causing pain and without any warning signals it leads to bones weakness. As time goes by, the patient feels pain, possibly in the elbows or limbs or wrist joints or backbone, the disease develops and many lead to fracture. Small framed women with thin bones face the greatest risk. Also multiple pregnancies with prolonged breastfeeding in the absence of adequate calcium intake raise the chance of developing osteoporosis. Poor diet, low calcium intake, lack of sunlight exposure (for vitamin D production), a sedentary lifestyle and smoking are some factors that lead to osteoporosis.
