Bone disease, includes any disease or injury affecting the human bones. As part of the skeletal system, bones give your body structure, help you move, and protect your internal organs. Getting enough calcium, vitamin D, and exercise will help develop strong bones when you are younger and prevent bone loss later in life.
Osteoporosis is one type of disease that causes bones to become weak, brittle, and prone to fractures (breaks). Other bone diseases include: osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones) and Paget’s disease (enlarged, weak bones).
