It’s never too early to start thinking about your bone density! Osteoporosis, a condition characterized by weakened bones susceptible to fractures, often goes unnoticed until a fracture occurs. At CFRS, we aim to unravel the complexities of osteoporosis, offering personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each patient. Whether you've been recently diagnosed, are seeking ongoing care for osteoporosis, or wish to access preventive services, our expertise covers a wide spectrum.

Risk Factors for Osteoporosis

Several factors contribute to the development of osteoporosis, including:

  • Age: The risk increases with age, especially in postmenopausal women.
  • Gender: Women are more prone to osteoporosis than men.
  • Family History: A family history of osteoporosis may increase the risk.
  • Body Weight: Low body weight or small body frame may contribute.
  • Hormone Levels: Reduced estrogen in women and testosterone in men can impact bone density.
  • Dietary Factors: Low calcium and vitamin D intake can affect bone health.
