Osteoporosis is a bone thinning disease that affects more than 28 million Americans - nearly one-third to one-half of older American women and an increasing number of American men. While bone mass naturally decreases with age, osteoporosis speeds bone loss, making them weak, fragile, and easy to break. Often called the "silent disease" because there are no early warning signs, many people don't know they have osteoporosis until they break a bone, often in the hip, wrist, or spine, or develop a curve in their spine, known as a "dowager hump."
