Let's talk about bone health!
Aging is a natural process that we all experience in life. With this often comes certain health issues or diseases linked to growing old such as Alzheimer's, arthritis, or the 'silent disease' otherwise known as Osteoporosis.
Translating to "porous bone", Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by a decrease in bone mass or a change in bone structure. The condition results in the progressive weakening of bone strength, resulting in an increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis can break bones anywhere on the body, but hip, spine, and wrist fractures are the most common.
Osteoporosis is commonly referred to as the 'silent disease' because individuals with Osteoporosis show no physical symptoms until a bone is broken or damaged.
As a result of Osteoporosis, you usually do not feel your bones becoming weaker. However, there are some signs that you can look out for in both the early and late stages. Let's take a closer look at symptoms of Osteoporosis and when they develop.
OSTEOPOROSIS SYMPTOMS IN EARLY STAGES
Bone fractures and bone pain can be prevented if Osteoporosis is treated at its earliest stages. Here are some signs and symptoms to look out for:
- Weak and brittle fingernails may indicate that the bones are in poor health.
- Low handgrip strength can be linked to low bone mineral density and fragility fractures, as results show in a study exploring Postmenopausal Healthy Korean Women.
- An early indication of Osteoporosis is receding gums due to bone loss in the jaw.
- Insufficiency of lung capacity due to compressed disks makes it difficult to breathe.
OSTEOPOROSIS SYMPTOMS IN LATER STAGES
The following symptoms may manifest once the bone mass has deteriorated further:
- Poor posture. A slight curvature of the upper back may also result from the vertebrae compression, leading to osteoporosis-related scoliosis.
- Fall-related fractures. In fragile bones, fractures are a common sign of something that could seem so simple going wrong. For example, slipping on the bathroom floor after a shower or for those with weaker bones, even natural bodily functions such as sneezing can cause internal damage.
- A decrease in height. Osteoporosis can result in shortening of the spine due to compression fractures.
- Severe pain in the upper or lower back and neck. Depending on the severity of Osteoporosis, compression fractures of the spine can cause severe pain since collapsed vertebrae may pinch nerves radiating out from the neck.
If you notice any of these symptoms, do not hesitate to contact a health professional to discuss further, as the sooner Osteoporosis is treated, the less detrimental it can be to your health.
