Extreme weakness of the muscles and bones is called as osteoporosis. Although large numbers of people may suffer from muscular weakness however patients suffering from osteoporosis are at high risk of getting bone and muscle fractures as well as damages. It is all due to loss of calcium from the bones or low level of calcium in the muscles and bones.
Advancing age is the chief stage at which most people get affected with this condition. Additionally, hormonal imbalance, smoking, intake of alcohol as well as reduction in density of bones is also responsible for this condition. Sometimes, people affected with certain liver or kidney diseases may also suffer from osteoporosis.
