Osteoporosis generally affects women more than men as their bones are thinner and lighter. Peak bone mass is achieved around 35 years of age and after this, bones lose density. Bones become fragile and weak and can easily fracture. It can lead to spinal degeneration and humpback. Bone loss also accelerates after menopause so that most women lose 30-50% of their bone mass by age 65
Calcium supplements and estrogen hormone replacement therapy are the general recommendations in cases of osteoporosis. However calcium intake is of no use without sufficient absorption. A case in point is that while Eskimo women have an intake of over 2,000 mg of calcium per day, they have one of the highest rates of osteoporosis.
Hormone replacement therapy is also not without its disadvantages. These hormones may help to maintain bone strength but do not restore bone loss that has already occurred. In addition conventional hormone replacement therapy has been shown to increase the risks of endometrial cancer and heart disease. Moreover it has been shown that it is not just estrogen but progesterone that helps in calcium absorption. Also once the therapy is stopped, calcium loss increases substantially.
