Endzone, a fitness and wellness consultancy firm recently conducted a survey revealing the susceptibility of osteoporosis among Indian women.
It has been observed that women in India are prone to osteoporosis especially between the age of 40-60 years. 20 percent of Indian women over 40 suffer from osteoporosis or brittle bones, while another 65-70 percent suffer from osteopenia or weak bones.
Therefore, the remedy to this problem is that women should undertake some type of weight training sessions which result in stronger bones and increased metabolism rate. Also, it has been seen that especially during menopause the risk of osteoporosis increases. Woman could lose up to 20 percent of their bone mass in five to seven years after menopause, making them more susceptible to osteoporosis.
