The main reason for the weakening of bones is calcium deficiency. With old age, the body starts absorbing calcium and phosphate instead of providing nutrients to the bones. Due to this, the bones become weak. Low bone density leads to osteoporosis and there's always the risk of bone breaking even with a single blow.

Having strong bones is very important for your body. Bones perform many functions such as providing structure, protecting organs, accommodating muscles, and storing calcium. However, it is important to build strong and healthy bones during childhood and adolescence, as after the age of 30, bones cannot absorb as much minerals.

In such a situation, weak bones can give rise to osteoporosis disease. This is a condition due to which bones become weak and brittle. Generally, weakening of bones depends on many issues but the most common reasons are increasing age, deficiency of calcium and minerals, sedentary lifestyle, consumption of tobacco and alcohol, obesity, etc.

However, necessary work to strengthen bones should be done by the age of 20. But if you did not pay special attention to your health during this age, then you should not make the mistake of ignoring these 5 signs. This may be a sign of weakening of the bones. After its diagnosis, you can take the measures mentioned here to avoid the consequences.

In such a situation, keep checking your height from time to time.

Broken bones
Fractures are closely related to weak bones. About 50 percent of women and 25 percent of men are expected to have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime due to low bone density. In which the matter of most concern is hip fracture.
