What Is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is the loss of bone strength and bone density when the mass of bones lessens. The human body continually absorbs older bone tissue and replaces it with new tissue. When osteoporosis sets in, new bone creation does not occur at a fast-enough rate to keep up with old bone tissue reabsorption. The condition affects men and women, though women are at a significantly higher risk of experiencing osteoporosis than men.
What Are the Symptoms of Osteoporosis?
The symptoms of osteoporosis are nearly invisible. Many people do not know they have osteoporosis until they have a bone fracture or break. Pain may be associated with osteoporosis as bones lose their strength and mass. Loss of height is associated with severe osteoporosis.
When Does Osteoporosis Occur?
Osteoporosis happens over time and generally affects people over the age of 50. It happens to many people over the course of normal aging and is not necessarily the result of poor diet, exercise or other forms of self-care.
What Are the Treatments Available for Osteoporosis?
While osteoporosis can't be completely cured, it can be reversible through a couple of methods. Vitamin D and Calcium supplements may help strengthen bones and lessen the effects of osteoporosis. One way that osteoporosis can be reversed is through conventional medication involving synthetic drugs such as ibandronic acid or risedronic acid.
How Can Hormone Pellets Help With Osteoporosis?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets such as the ones offered by BioTE Medical treat the root cause of bone density loss in osteoporosis in men and women. One of the roles of estrogen within the body is its function in protecting bones. As we age, the amount of estrogen in both male and female bodies diminish. BioTE provides a consistent supplementation of this crucial hormone, reversing bone loss and restoring wellness to the foundation of your body.
