-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Osteoporosis occurs when the bones lose density and break more easily. Though it's a common problem, osteoporosis shouldn't be ignored.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation says possible complications include:

  • Broken bones.
  • Chronic pain.
  • Losing height.
  • A hunched or stooped posture.
  • Reduced mobility, which can result in feeling depressed or lonely.
  • The potential need for nursing home care, such as for a broken hip.
