Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone density and micro architectural distortion leading to increased bone fragility. It can be classified into primary osteoporosis as a result of advancing age, menopause and secondary resulting due to adverse effects of variety of medications used in long-term illnesses, endocrine disorders, and post chemotherapy survivors. Osteoporosis contributes to significant morbidity particularly in women due to fragility fractures and mobility issues.
