Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bone becomes decreased, causing the bone to become brittle and prone to cracking. osteoporosis is usually found at an advanced age of around 50-80 years and is often found more quickly in women due to hormonal factors such as menopause. In addition, lack of calcium can also be a causative factor for osteoporosis.
At first osteoporosis usually does not cause symptoms. However, if osteporosis continues, the bones will become thinner and more fragile, making them vulnerable to fractures or broken bones. The part of the bone that is prone to cracking is the spine, hip bone or groin and wrist. Besides the common complaints that can arise in osteoporosis, namely:
Pain or back pain

Nails become brittle and break easily.
Back pain is indeed one of the symptoms of osteoporosis, but pain is not a major symptom of osteopoosis. In osteoporosis rarely cause pain, until bone leveling occurs. So that this bone fracture is often the cause of pain. In addition, bent posture due to spinal loss so that it cannot support body weight can also cause pain.
Therefore, to ensure osteoporosis, direct examination is needed.
