Abstract

WORLD WIDE PREVALANCE OF OSTEOPOROSIS AND ITS MANAGEMENT - A REVIEW

K. Shireesh Kumar, M. Jagadeesh Reddy, D. Sudheer Kumar and P. Kishore*

ABSTRACT

Osteoporosis is a progressive disorder of bone tissue characterized by insidious loss of bone mineral density and microarchitecture leading to impaired skeletal strength and increased susceptibility to fractures. Although it is seen in all age groups mostly in age greater than 50 years, female gender, asian, caucasian, black and hispanic races. However in ageing population, fractures are developed in a faster rate due to late recognition of disease process. The pathological change during osteoporosis is supported by the recent understandings of bone physiology that focuses on the mismatch communication between osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Dual X-Ray Absorpitometry is referred as a standard device for diagnosis of osteoporosis along with osteoporotic fractures. Moreover osteoporosis results in decreased quality of life and disability. Early diagnosis by assessing bone mineral density and providing effective treatment can prevent the osteoporosis. It is important to create the awareness among health care professionals as well as every individual in early recognition of symptoms will be effective in prevention of disease process.

Keywords: Osteoporosis, Bone Mineral Density, Fractures, Osteonecrosis of Jaw and Vitamin D.
