Today we talk about osteoporosis prevention and we do it by indicating a particular condition that could be related to this disease. In fact, hardly anyone knows that this symptom could indicate osteoporosis risk in men, and it should not be underestimated. Let’s see what it’s about.
The particular symptom
Osteoporosis is a disease that mostly affects people over the age of 60, but it can also affect younger people. It consists of a strong weakening of the bones, which makes fractures easier.
There are some fractures that are more common than others that people with osteoporosis are prone to. In particular, the wrist, hip and vertebrae are the most at risk. Unfortunately, older people who break one of these bones are likely to have serious permanent effects on the physique.
The risk factors are many, including family history, age, and particular conditions such as anorexia. Furthermore, women have a higher risk of contracting it, particularly after menopause. In fact, it is hormonal changes that can expose you to risk of osteoporosis, since female hormones play a significant role in bone health.
For men, the causes are less clear, but they seem to be related to male hormones. The symptom we see today concerns potential hormonal problems.
Hardly anyone knows that this symptom could indicate osteoporosis risk in men
What few people know is that there is a particular condition, which affects some men, which could be related to osteoporosis. We are talking about the sperm deficiency, which is associated with various ailments. In particular, those with low sperm concentration are at greater risk of hypogonadism, which is an unusual reduction in testosterone in the body. Hypogonadism has long been known as one of the factors that can lead to osteoporosis.
Now we know, therefore, that it is good to keep this particular value under control, so as to understand if we suffer from hypogonadism. This is a useful step in the prevention of osteoporosis.
