Causes of Osteoporosis

Although we tend to think of osteoporosis as one of the women's health issues, men are also susceptible to it.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the causes of osteoporosis are:

  • Aging
  • Heredity
  • Nutrition
  • Lifestyle
  • Medications
  • and Other Illnesses.

This video will give you a good overview of osteoporosis and it's causes

You may want to visit the Academy's website for more details not only about the causes but also about osteoporosis treatment.

The good news about osteoporosis is that it can be

prevented and treated!

Another good place to go for information about osteoporosis treatment and its causes is the National Osteoporosis Foundation's website.
