In brief: Symptoms of Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis has been called the silent disease.
Most people affected are unaware that their bones are thinning until they experience a break, or notice more gradual signs such as height loss, or curvature of the spine (sometimes known as Dowagers Hump).


The bones most likely to break as a result of osteoporosis are the hip, wrist and the vertebrae of the spine.
