Join the adventure of life to find out if you know what contributes to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is diagnosed in 5.1% of men over 65 and in 24.5% of women over 65. Osteoporosis occurs when there has been an excess amount of bone loss or when the body does not make enough bone. Due to this, the bones become brittle and break easily. Factors that increase risk of diagnosis are sex, older age, family history, and diet. Furthermore, lifestyles that can affect the probability of the disease include a sedentary lifestyle, excessive alcohol consumption, and tobacco use. The most commonly affected bones are the hips, spine, and wrist. This interactive storyboard will help you determine if you know the risk factors and some contributing factors that can lead to osteoporosis.
