Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by decreased bone strength leading to increased risk of fractures. It is prevalent in postmenopausal women, but may also occur in men and women with underlying conditions or risk factors associated with bone demineralization. WHO defines Osteoporosis as a bone density that is 2.5 SD below the mean for young healthy adults of the same sex.
