It is a condition in which bones become thinner, weaker and the risk of fracture increases as a result of decreased bone density. Osteoclasis, It is especially common in post-menopausal women. This is because the estrogen hormone decreases. However, it can also be seen in men.

Osteoclasis, It usually does not show any signs or symptoms and the person does not notice it until they experience a bone fracture. However, in advanced stages, symptoms may include:

  • Back hump: When the spine bones weaken, a hump can form in the upper area of the spine.
  • Loss of height: Weakening of bones can result in shortening of height.
  • Back, neck, hip, wrist or arm fractures: People are more prone to fractures even during normal activities.
  • Back or lower back pain: When the bones of the spine weaken, pain or discomfort may be felt in the back or lower back area.
  • Collapse: People may collapse suddenly while standing or walking.


Diagnosis can be made by bone density measurement (densitometry). This test shows how dense the bones are and how high the risk of osteoporosis is.

Osteoporosis Treatment


Treatment may vary depending on the patient's age, gender, bone density, fracture risk, and other factors. Some osteoclasis Treatment methods include:

  • Drug therapy: Medications, It can increase bone density by slowing bone loss. These medications can be used together with calcium and vitamin D supplements.
  • Hormone therapy: In post-menopausal women, bone loss accelerates due to lack of estrogen hormone. Hormone therapy can increase bone density by increasing estrogen levels.
  • Nutrition: Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake is important for bone health. It is recommended to consume foods rich in calcium (milk, yoghurt, cheese, broccoli, cabbage, almonds, etc.) and foods rich in vitamin D (salmon, tuna, eggs, etc.).
  • Exercise: Regular physical activity, such as strengthening exercises and walking, can help strengthen bones.
  • Lifestyle changes: Smoking and alcohol use are harmful to bone health. Therefore, avoiding these habits may help bone health.


Osteoclasis Treatment may use a combination of different methods depending on the patient's condition. Treatment focuses on preventing bone fractures and increasing bone density.
