Study Reveals, Effective Treatment of Osteoporosis Can Save Lives

According to a study conducted in Australia, efficient treatment of osteoporosis can save a lot of human lives.

It is said that the disease might affect nearly 2.2 million older Australians, however four out of five cases have not been detected and the problem remains overlooked till the time people undergo a severe fracture.

In the study there was a comparison made between the continuing endurance of aged people with treated osteoporosis compared with individuals who were not treated.

Professor John Eisman, Director of the Osteoporosis and Bone Biology Program at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, stated, "Effective osteoporosis treatment reduces the risk of premature death due to fracture, illness and injury by ten per cent in older, frailer people at high risk of fracture".

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism has published the study.

The research reviewed the results of ten clinical studies comprising over 39,500 patients globally.

According to Prof. Eisman, avoidance of the initial osteoporosis-related fracture was the solution tolong-term endurance.

It is said that the occurrence of Osteoporosis takes place when bones lose minerals, like calcium, quicker than the body can substitute them leading to lesser bone density.

The threat can be lessened by leading an active life in their younger days and carry on exercising when they grow older.

It can also happen by maintaining a healthy diet including milk, cheese and yoghurt, leafy green vegetables, egg yolk and some calcium rich fishes.
