Osteoporosis, known as the ‘silent disease’, is a medical condition where your bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue. It’s called the silent disease because it doesn’t exhibit symptoms like other diseases to tell you there is something wrong.
Many times people don’t find out they have it until they fracture a bone or happen to get a bone scan test.
By then, a considerable amount of bone density could have been lost without the individual knowing about it. However, there can be some telltale signs to warn you about this silent disease if you’re aware of what to watch for.
