What is osteoporosis? | Latest news | Links

India Infoline News Service: Organised by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), World Osteoporosis Day involves campaigns by national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world.


World Osteoporosis Day is observed annually on 20th October. It launches a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. Organised by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), World Osteoporosis Day involves campaigns by national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world.

The Disease: A disease of the bones, Osteoporosis decreases the density and quality of the bones, leading to weakness of the skeleton and increased risk of fracture, particularly of the spine, wrist and hip. The condition occurs basically due to porous bones which in turn happen due to the lack of intake of Calcium and Vitamin D by an individual. Most common amongst post-menopausal women, osteoporosis is on the rise in India, also impacting men. Denial of personal risk by postmenopausal women, lack of dialogue about osteoporosis with their doctor, and restricted access to diagnosis and treatment before the first fracture result in under diagnosis and under treatment of the disease. The annual incidence rate of osteoporotic fractures in women is greater than the combined incidence rates of heart attack, stroke and breast cancer worldwide

Best Prevention:
The best way to counter and prevent osteoporosis is having adequate Calcium and Vitamin D in the diet. This can best be achieved through a nutritious diet that includes dairy, nuts, beans and calcium-rich greens and fruits. Dairy products offer the greatest amount of calcium and also provide protein. Milk plays an important role in protecting bone health and make bones grow stronger.

Dr Sushil Sharma, Chairman of the Arthritis Foundation of India, says “Increased osteoporosis cases in India may be on account of deficiency of Calcium and Vitamin D, poor nutrition, less exposure to sports, high incidences of diabetes and not reaching peak bone mass at the age of 25.” Having milk processed with Ultra High Temperature (UHT) technology is the safest and most reliable option. Milk packed in Tetra Pak cartons using aseptic technology retains nutrition, taste and quality, as the packaging material protects the contents inside from bacteria, odours and other harmful environmental conditions.

Vitamin D is necessary for the body to absorb calcium. Milk that is fortified with Vitamin D is one of the best sources of this. Sunlight is also an excellent source of vitamin D. In fact, being in the sun for just fifteen minutes a day helps the body produce and activate vitamin D. Daily exercise is also an important element of being osteoporosis free. Beginning a lifelong commitment to healthy nutrition and exercise while you are still young reduces your risk of developing this condition later in life. So start now and be bone healthy.
