Osteoporosis - Symptoms

Osteoporosis is called the ‘silent disease’ because bone loss occurs without symptoms and is painless. The condition often is not detected until it is quite advanced. Some signs in the advanced stages may include:

  • Fracture of the hip, spine and wrists
  • Back pain
  • Loss of height over time
