Osteoporosis is a disease caused due to thinning of the bones, which leads to an increased risk of fractures. People used to think that osteoporosis was an inevitable part of aging. Today we know a lot more about how to prevent, detect and treat this disease. While post-menopausal females are at the highest risk, other groups such as patients taking steroid therapy can also develop osteoporosis. During this webinar, Dr. Ahmed will be reviewing the signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment options and ways to prevent the onset of the disease.
