The truth is, you may not have any physical warning signs if you have osteoporosis. Because there really aren't any osteoporosis symptoms, it's often called a "silent disease." The loss of bone can be very gradual. You may not know it's happening until you suffer a fracture.
If you're over fifty, or have gone through menopause, your osteoporosis risk is very real. Osteoporosis causes approximately one out of every two women over 50 years old to suffer a bone fracture during their remaining lifetime. In some cases, women with osteoporosis have bones so fragile that they can break when doing something as simple as bending over to tie a shoe.
Or small parts of their spine may collapse, resulting in a curve in their back. Some women may actually lose an inch or two of height.
If you've gone through menopause, it's important to talk to your doctor about your osteoporosis risk and ways to prevent bone loss. Ask your doctor about Reclast. Reclast is an annual osteoporosis treatment. Just one yearly dose of Reclast, along with daily calcium and Vitamin D, helps to increase bone density. So your bones are strengthened. And you can get back to the things you enjoy, on your schedule.
