About Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones become weak and more porous.

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones become weak and more porous. When left untreated, you greatly increase the risk of serious bone breaks and fractures.

Many people with osteoporosis are asymptomatic and will only know they have it once they’ve experienced a bone fracture or have lost some of their height over time.

Risk factors for this condition include age, certain ethnic backgrounds, a family history of osteoporosis, smaller body frames, menopause and certain medical conditions and medications. Women are also at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis than men.

How can lifestyle management improve my osteoporosis?

Along with medication, lifestyle management can go a long way towards improving osteoporosis symptoms or preventing it from getting worse. You can do small things like eating a healthy diet that is rich in calcium and vitamin D, avoiding alcohol and smoking, doing weight-bearing exercises to strengthen your bones and remembering to get some sun in order to boost vitamin D production.

What are my osteoporosis treatment options?

Osteoporosis treatment usually includes medications along with making lifestyle changes such as adding more calcium and vitamin D to your diet and regularly doing exercises that are designed to help prevent bone loss or strengthen existing weak bones.

Osteoporosis medications that are prescribed by your doctor work by increasing bone density. The treatment prescribed will depend on your current health, symptoms and risk factors.

In order to receive treatment for osteoporosis through Rosemary, you must already have seen a doctor, received a diagnosis and be prescribed your regular treatment by your general practitioner. An online doctor in Australia on our platform can help you access your treatment and is available to chat online about your progress whenever you need.

To know that your osteoporosis treatment is effective you’ll need to have regular reviews with your doctor to monitor your bone density and other progress markers.
