Thinning of bone mass is known as Osteopenia. Osteopenia is considered to be a serious risk factor for osteoporosis. Osteopenia is commonly observed in people aged above 50 who do not have osteoporosis but have average bone density. Smoking and drinking can affect the calcium level in the body, leading to weakening of bones. High salt, caffeine and soda consumption can also lead to osteopenia. Osteopenia treatment is a must for people above the age of 50. Healthy lifestyle plays a very important role in strengthening of bones. Regular exercise and healthy diet improve bone density. Developing healthy habits and osteopenia treatment methods can slow osteopenia and strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis. Osteopenia treatment includes medications, which include bisphosphonate medications, such as ibandronate (Boniva), alendronate (Fosamax), risedronate (Actonel), zoledronate (Reclast) and raloxifene (Evista). Calcium and vitamin D supplements are also a part of osteopenia treatment. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, women aged 65 years and above & men aged 70 years and above should be tested for osteopenia. Also, adults aged 50 and above with a fractured bone, postmenopausal women, adults taking medication, such as prednisone or other steroids, and prone to medical conditions associated with bone loss, such as rheumatoid arthritis, should be tested for osteopenia. These group of people are at a high risk of developing osteopenia and osteoporosis. All these factors will act as driving factors for the growth of the osteopenia treatment market.
