It is believed that osteoporosis mostly victimizes women and rarely any man. But, a team of researchers has suggested that to take the cases occurring amongst women for granted would be wrong.
Orthopedic surgeon Ramesh Ranka from Ranka Hospital is of the opinion that the belief is true, but only to some extent. He has told that men are also realizing the disease on a high rate in recent years. The reason can vary from person to person, including faulty lifestyle or high-life expectancy. Osteoporosis, the report says, weakens one's skeleton and breaks the bones as well.
Also, the disease can be primary or secondary; the former is caused due to age-related bone loss and the latter by lifestyle behaviors or medications.
Though, larger skeletons in men help them fight the illness for a long time. Also, late commencement of their bone loss as well as slow progresses along with no particular rapid hormonal change period aid to avert the illness.
The change in their lifestyles over years is now causing them to suffer the disease as well. However, without a doubt, the number of cases in men is still less that that amid women. "Alcohol abuse and smoking are the two most major causes of osteoporosis in men", said Ranka.
