Bone resorption is a condition in which the bone density becomes weak and easily broken as a result of the decrease in mineral density in the unit volumes.
What are the symptoms of bone resorption?
• Spine fracture
• Shortening of one’s height
• Back and waist pain
• Fractures of the hip
• Fractures of the wrist bones
Causes of Bone Resorption
Bone resorption occurs with the predisposition of the genetic structure, with 50 percent genetic properties. The remaining 50 percent include nutritional disorders, lack of exercise, fixed position and heavy lifting, which we call environmental factors.
How can I reduce the risk of bone resorption?
Exercise: If possible, regular weight control exercises (walking, running, etc.) should be continued because it reduces bone loss and provides new bone formation.
Nutrition: Since the body cannot produce its own calcium, a high-calcium nutritional habit is necessary and this reduces the rate of bone loss.
Reducing Fracture Risk: Movement and daily activities should be given importance to reduce the risk of bone resorption and fracture.
Getting Adequate Sunlight: Regular but moderate exposure to sunlight helps to produce vitamin D in the body.
Calcium: Calcium additives can be used to increase the amount of calcium.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is very important for the absorption of calcium into the bones.
Bisphosphonates: These hormone-free drugs can increase bone density and reduce bone loss.
