In the contemporary science Osteopenia means decrease in the bone tissue. Osteoporosis is defined as “a progressive systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and loss of bone tissue that may lead to weak and fragile bones and increased risk for fracture of bones (broken bones), particularly in the hip, spine, and wrist”.[1] Osteoporosis is a global dilemma that will increase in significance with the growing elderly population. The condition affects both the sexes and all races albeit to different degrees. Women are at high risk compare to men.

Around the world, one in three women and one in five men over the age of 50 will experience an Osteoporotic fracture in there life time.[2, 3] Osteopenia is a condition where bone mineral density is lower than normal (T score – 1.0 to -2.5). Osteoporosis has been operationally defined on the basis of bone mineral density (BMD) assessment. According to the WHO criteria, Osteoporosis is defined as a BMD that lies (T score of <-2.5 SD).[4]
