What Does Osteoporosis Look Like?

Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
Osteoporosis means "porous bones" and as we age we have bone loss which can lead to porous bones. Not everyone will lose enough bone to develop osteoporosis, however, many factors increase your chance of developing this disease.

See this slideshow, A Visual Guide to Osteoporosis , for more information about porous bones, symptoms, tests and treatments.

Do you have any factors that increase your risk?
Have you developed any habits to improve your condition?
