Using Evista to Treat OsteoporosisOsteoporosis is a chronic medical condition where the body loses bone mass faster than it can be dealt. Interestingly, there are two opposing forces which will lead to osteoporosis.

On the one hand, bone is built in response to stresses such as weight-bearing and muscle strength. On the other hand, bone is also lost in response to hormonal activity and lack of weight-bearing stress on the bones.

In young adults the difference between bone growth and loss is on the positive side. This means that up until an individual reaches age 30 they are laying down more bone van is being destroyed.

After 35 bone is lost progressively faster than it is being built. Over the past 15 years researchers have been on a quest to discover medications and therapies that will either hinder the loss of bone or increased bone building activity, all in an effort to decrease the negative effects for individuals who suffer from osteoporosis.
