20 Signs and Treatments for Osteoporosis

14. Losing Height.

Generally speaking it is somewhat normal to lose some of your stature over the years. However, if you notice that you are shrinking at an alarming rate this could be a warning sign that you are affected by osteoporosis. When osteoporosis sets in the bones, the minerals in your bone cells become depleted. When your bones lose minerals, they also lose much of their strength that helps to keep you upright and tall, which means they cause you to shrink. If you notice this sign, it is important to report this to your doctor or qualified healthcare provider for the best treatment options.
