Nonmodifiable risk factors for osteoporosis include: being female, being over age fifty, having a small frame, having an endocrine disorder, having a family member with the disease, and being Caucasian or Asian. The risk factors for osteoporosis that can be changed are: smoking, alcohol intake, physical inactivity, and poor nutrition. Those who are at the highest risk for osteoporosis are thin, elderly Caucasian and Asian women who have a family history of osteoporosis. Various medical conditions or chronic use of certain medications can also increase the risk, as can smoking, alcohol, and inactivity.
A T-score of ( standard deviations below the average range in young and healthy women) is the point at which osteoporosis is diagnosed in post-menopausal women and older men. DXA results can be used to recalculate the FRAX score to get a more accurate risk value. The risk factors associated with osteoporosis may be modifiable or non-modifiable. Non-modifiable risk factors include age and sex: estro-gen deficiency following menopause or oophorectomy is correlated with a rapid reduction in bone mineral density. Ethnicity is also recognized as a non-modifiable risk factor and European or Asian ancestry.
Poor oral health and dental problems can lead to difficulty chewing, inflammation, and a monotonous diet that is poor in quality, all of which increase the risk of malnutrition. Progressive loss of vision and hearing, as well as osteoarthritis, may limit mobility and affect the elderly people's ability to shop for food and prepare meals. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that causes a loss of bone density, which increases your risk of fractures. Learn about its causes, risk factors, and treatments.

An ethnic specific risk factor model, which had a 10% higher sensitivity than FRAX at a specificity of ≥ for the prediction of major osteoporotic fracture, was developed for Hong Kong postmenopausal women. These clinical risk factors increased the fracture risk even in Cited by: Asian American women may be at risk for developing osteoporosis (porous bones), a disease that can be prevented and treated.
Studies show that Asian Americans share many of the risk factors that apply to white women. As an Asian American woman, it is important that you understand what osteoporosis is and what steps you can take to prevent or treat it.

Bone mass in later life depends on the peak bone mass achieved during growth and the rate of subsequent age-related bone loss. (HealthDay News) -- Certain risk factors make you more prone than others to malnutrition, which doesn't necessarily come from lack of food.

Risk factors and causes of malnutrition in elderly There are several factors that can contribute to malnutrition in the elderly and these can be complex and multifactorial. They include poor appetite, poor dentition , loss of taste and smell, difficulties accessing and preparing food and cognitive impairment .
The significance of the association of various risk factors with osteopenia/osteoporosis was studied. Using Chi-square test, significance of association of these risk factors with osteopenia/osteoporosis was also assessed. Sex of the patients was found to be significantly associated with T-score (P.
It is difficult to determine exactly what proportion of those losses are due to maternal malnutrition, but recent research indicates that 60 percent of deaths of children under age 5 are associated with malnutrition — and children’s malnutrition is strongly correlated with mothers’ poor nutritional status.
17 Problems related to anemia. It's estimated that 20 percent of Asian and non-Hispanic Caucasian women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, while 52 percent have a precursor to osteoporosis known as. But there are certain risk factors that may make you more susceptible to developing osteoporosis.

Start studying Osteoporosis. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist.
Men as well as women are affected by osteoporosis, a disease that can be prevented and treated. In the United States, more than 53 million people either already have osteoporosis or are. Compared with white women, Asian women have about a 40%–50% and blacks a 50%–60% lower risk of hip fracture, but the reason for this racial difference is not known.
Ethnicity is another risk factor for osteoporosis that is uncontrollable. Caucasian and Asian women are at the highest risk for the development of osteoporosis. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF), an estimated percent of Caucasian women and percent of Asian women age 50 and older have osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a common disorder that affects approximately 10 million people in the United States.

Family history is also a contributory risk factor. Since osteoporosis has no symptoms during its early stages, it’s often left undiagnosed and untreated.combination of the risk factors.
All risk factors need to be assessed and a planned life style modification is necessary. Published research in the west and east both have documented smoking as a major risk factor for osteoporosis.
Lower bone mineral density and reduced cortical thickness leading to fragility fractures were reported in many.
