Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease affecting bones and is caused by decreased tissue that forms both of the proteins that constitute the matrix and the structure of the mineral salts containing calcium. Following a skeletal demineralization that leaves brittle and susceptible to fractures and microfractures bones occurs. This condition occurs mostly in women, amenorrheic or postmenupáusicas due to decreased estrogen production by the ovaries and other hormonal deficiencies.
