Osteoporosis is often called the "silent disease" because it is symptomless. People may not even realize they have osteoporosis until it has advanced to the point where their bones are so weak that a sudden strain, bump, or fall causes a hip to fracture or a vertebra to collapse. The estimated cost of osteoporosis and related fractures is now approximately 14 billion dollars annually.
