Given its asymptomatic nature in most of the cases, osteoporosis (loss of bone mass) is called the ‘silent epidemic’. Regular screening is a necessary prerequisite for the timely diagnosis and treatment. Osteoporosis can result into serious conditions such as fractures of the hip, wrist and spine, loss of height, kyphosis, changes in body posture and back and chest pains. It affects middle- and old-aged adults and mostly women.
