What all causes bone health?
- Osteoporosis – This is a type of bone disease where the bones become weak and brittle. This condition is because of an imbalance between the breakdown and rebuilding of bone tissues. This is mostly disturbed because of hormonal changes or dietary changes. During these changes, the bone may lose some minerals that contribute to its density and strength.
- Osteopenia – This is a condition in which the bone density is decreased.
- Osteomalacia – Osteomalacia is caused because of a deficiency of vitamin D and calcium, which results in softening of bones.
- Osteolytic lesions – Osteolytic lesions are the symptoms of specific diseases like breast cancer, multiple myelomas, etc. Osteolytic lesions are the softened section of the bones.
- Paget’s Disease – Paget’s Disease is a bone disorder in which old bone tissues are gradually replaced by new bone tissues. This may lead to fragile bones.
- Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) – Alkaline Phosphatase is an enzyme found in various tissues throughout the body. The highest concentrations of alkaline phosphatase are found in bone and liver.
- Calcium – Calcium is useful in building bones and maintaining their health. 99% of calcium in our body is in our bones and teeth.
- Parathyroid disorders – Parathyroid disorders may lead to abnormal levels of calcium in the blood that may lead to brittle bones, kidney stones, tiredness, weakness, etc.
