Osteoporosis is a bone disease, occurring when you either lose too much bone or your body makes too little bone. Either way, your bones then become brittle, weak, and prone to fracture. The good news is that osteoporosis can be prevented and even reversed, when you are aware of the risk factors and adjust your lifestyle accordingly.
