Osteoporosis literally means "porous bones." If you did not build sufficient bone mass during your bone building years, you are at a lower threshold when you age. With the falling levels of estrogen (in women) and testosterone (in men) and its associated bone loss, you may have bone density below a normal level. Inadequate intake of calcium and vitamin D as a child and a number of other clinical risk factors will lead to osteoporosis. Some medications, although necessary, will cause bone depletion.. These ‘Speaking from Experience’ video clips offer first-hand accounts from people who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. They discuss the impact it has had on their lives and the ways in which they manage their health because of it.. “Living with Osteoporosis” was produced in partnership with American Bone Health. ABH mobilizes communities with timely bone health information that supports strong and healthy bones and prevents osteoporosis and fractures..
