World osteoporosis day is October 20. Since 1996, globally, it has been observed seriously since the year 1996, to create awareness about the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of bone corrosion or osteoporosis. This year, the theme of the theme of World Osteoporosis Day in Bangladesh is ‘all the burden of unstable burden’.
There are 206 bones or bones in the human body. The bone strengthens the bones of the bones of the normal structure, containing the blood, collagen and calcium. At the age of 30 years the bone is the highest and the bones are strong. This is called a bone pickup quantity. After 28-30 years of natural law, the bone density and quantity of the human body decreases, the bones are weak and fragile. As a result, the bones are easily accessible. Depending on the extent of this reduction of bone, depending on the health, diet, genetic and physical work of the person.This poor condition of bone is the most in 50 to 60 years. In medical science, it is called Osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS).
Osteoporosis or bone loss or bone decay is a disease that reduces bone density in a certain degree, causing bones to become weak and fragile. The bone is 20 to 35 years old, and after 40 years the bone loses its calcium and phosphate, resulting in bone changes, becomes weak and fragile. At the age of 50, 15 percent and 70-80 years of age, 30 percent of the woman’s hip bone or hip bone broke.
What is osteoporosis or bone loss?
The internal density of the bones is an ongoing process. At the age of 16-18 years, bone growth in the bones is stopped, but the intensity of the bone gradually increases by 20 years of age. By the age of 35 the bone formation and decay continue to move at the same pace. After 40 years of age, bone loss level has increased slightly with the increase in natural laws. So bone loss at a certain age is a normal process. This condition of bone increases as the bones become soft and fragile, the condition is called osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis or Bone Disease Outbreak?
Both men and women are affected by this disease, but after menopause or menstrual periods, the estrogen hormone decreases in the body, resulting in increased bone loss. And men’s testosterone hormone began to decline at the age of 70, then bone loss began. However, international statistics show that 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 and 1 in every 5 men have osteoporosis or bone decay.
Of those who suffer from osteoporosis or bone loss, 80 percent of women and 20 percent of men
Who is at risk of osteoporosis?
At present, osteoporosis or bone loss disease has threatened the elderly population worldwide.
The risks of osteoporosis are:
- Women who stop menopause or menstrual periods
- Asia or Caucasian.
- Someone whose family has osteoporosis.
- Those who do not receive adequate calcium and vitamin D
- Those who do not exercise
- Those who have less weight
- Who smokes and drinks alcohol.
- Some diseases increase the risk of osteoporosis. Such as rheumatoid arthritis; Those who have low levels of estrogen hormone, they have low levels of testosterone hormone, their body’s thyroid hormone levels are abnormally high, in which parathyroid hormone levels are abnormal, which inhibit the absorption of food. For example- celiac disease or crohon’s disease.
