About Postmenopausal Osteoporosis Drugs Market

Bones have the ability to grow and heal naturally, but changes in diet, exercise levels, and body chemistry lead to changes in the bone mineral density. This results in osteoporosis, which is characterized by low bone density and structural deterioration of bone tissues, leading to fragile bones. Rapid bone resorption or slow bone replacement can result in the development of the disease. Gender, age, body size (low body weight), ethnicity, and family history also play a role in developing osteoporosis. Other risk factors include medication, calcium and vitamin intake, alcohol intake, and smoking.

Women are at a greater risk of developing osteoporosis than men as estrogens play an important role in maintaining bone strength. Small amounts of bone are lost as part of normal aging process, but on reaching menopause, estrogen levels decline drastically, leading to a greater risk of developing osteoporosis.
