Osteopenia is a condition that begins as lose bone mass and bones get weaker. This happens when the inside of bones become brittle from a loss of calcium. It’s very common as age. Total bone mass peaks around age 35. People who have osteopenia are at a higher risk of having osteoporosis.
Most people who have osteopenia don’t have symptoms. Loss of bone mass isn’t painful. Broken bones or fractures can occur, but these problems tend to happen once have osteoporosis.
During the period of life,bones constantly change. New bone grows while old bone breaks down and body absorbs it. When we’re young, you grow new bone faster than body breaks down old bone. This contributes to a high bone mass. Once your body starts to break down old bone faster than it creates new bone, your bone mass begins to decrease. Loss of bone mass weakens of bones and can cause them to break. The beginning of this decline is known as osteopenia. For some people, it can lead to osteoporosis, which is more alarming.
Women are more likely to have osteopenia than men. This is due to several factors. Women have a lower bone mass overall and absorb less calcium than men do. They also tend to live longer. In women, the rate of bone loss speeds up after menopause as estrogen levels fall. Since the ovaries make estrogen, faster bone loss will occur if both ovaries are removed by surgery.
