Bone diseases can make bones easy to break.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
As you age, you body’s production of bone decreases, slowing to the point where you can no longer create new bone as quickly as your body removes old bone.
Insuring that you get enough calcium, vitamin D and exercise can help prevent bone loss as you age and promote strong, healthy bones when you are young.
Some of the different types of bone problems include low bone density and osteoporosis, making your bones easy to break. Conditions such as Osteogenesis imperfecta can make your bones weak and brittle. It is also possible for your bones to develop cancer and infections.
Certain genetic conditions and poor nutrition can also cause bone diseases and hinder your ability to grow new bone as you age.
