Osteopenia and osteoporosis (porous bone) are both terms which help to define the continuum of loss of bone density which leads to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures of the hip, spine and wrist.
Loss of bone density is characterized by too little bone formation, excessive bone loss or a combination of both, typically as a result of hormonal changes, or deficiency of calcium or vitamin D. Both osteopenia and osteoporosis remain largely under diagnosed because of their asymptomatic nature, especially in the less severe stages of bone loss.
This report provides the current prevalent population for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis across 13 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil, Japan, India, China, Russia and Australia) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current prevalence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
The following conditions and comorbidities are associated with loss of bone mineral density:
Bone fractures (particularly in the spine or hip)
