The risks of osteopenia––the thinning of the bones that contributes to osteoporosis––increase as we get older. Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease because you can’t feel your bones weakening. The first sign for many people is easily breaking a bone, noticing you are getting shorter, or realizing your upper back is curving forward. Osteoporosis can affect both men and women. Take steps to ensure strong bones early in life––long before you experience any symptoms.
