OSTEOPOROSIS









Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease and affects more than 200 million people worldwide. Bones become fragile and break easily, following a simple fall or an activity such as dressing or sneezing. A diagnosis of osteoporosis can be made from a bone-density scan known as a DXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry), or in people who suffer a fragility fracture.
A DXA scan should be considered for all women aged 65 years and older, men aged 70 years and older, and younger men and women with fragility fractures or with other risk factors such as family history, certain illnesses and medications.
Fracture is the medical term for a broken bone. While osteoporosis can occur at any age, frail elderly people are at greatest risk. One in two women and one in five men aged 50 years and older will suffer an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetime.
A postmenopausal woman’s annual risk of fracture is greater than her combined risk of cardiovascular disease – stroke or heart attack – and invasive breast cancer. Fractures can result in pain, disability and loss of independence.
The cost of care for these patients is high, as many require hospitalisation and surgery. International figures show one in five people die within a year of fracturing a hip.
At the recent annual meeting of the Irish Osteoporosis Society, in Athlone, it was pointed out that about 200,000 Irish people have osteoporosis, and many of them are unaware they have the condition.
A 2013 paper outlined that 18,000 osteoporotic fractures occur annually in Ireland, with an estimated total cost of care of €653 million. National hospital data shows more than 11,000 patients are admitted to Irish hospitals each year with fractures, and 28 per cent of those are men. In the past decade this number has risen, as have the length of stay and cost of care for these patients.
Though we do not have statistics for India it is more or less the same!
Several speakers discussed hip fractures, as Ireland has one of the highest rates of hip fracture in the world. About 10 per cent are admitted to Galway University Hospitals annually, of whom one in three men and one in five women die within a year.
The national hip fracture database and the global “Capture the fracture” programme (capturethefracture.org) were discussed. These were established to help address the needs of these patients and to improve their care. Irish healthcare facilities can use these to compare their services to other centres around the world.
Unfortunately many patients who sustain fractures are never diagnosed with, or treated, for their underlying disease: osteoporosis. Reasons for this include lack of knowledge, resources and a national policy. Guidelines are available, and an updated one is in progress.
Prof Kassim Javaid from Oxford spoke about fracture liaison programmes in England and outlined four critical steps in the process of care for patients with osteoporotic fractures:
·         Find them
·         Assess them
·         Decide how to treat them
·         Follow up to make sure the patient remains in treatment
Ensuring patients have enough calcium in their diet, adequate vitamin D and regular weight-bearing exercise are essential.
Supplemental calcium and vitamin D may be required if patients are deficient. Fall prevention is a key part of any fracture prevention strategy. A growing list of medications have been shown to reduce the risk of fracture. These are generally very safe, cheap and effective. Patients should discuss osteoporosis with their doctor.
World Osteoporosis Day is on Monday, October 20th. For further information attend Yoga classes  to strengthen your bones….

Introduction to World Yoga 2014

We are happy to announce that we are conducting World Yoga 2014 on February 23 Sunday at Chennai. You may see that we have included many events along with Yoga. We have the venue at D.G.Vaishnava College which is very popular in Chennai. This can be reached by Bus, Two Wheeler or Car. We have huge parking area to park your vehicles. The program is sponsored by many companies who market healthy foods in India. The sponsors have been selected sensibly so that inspire the individuals , mainly kids to get the idea that eating healthy foods, practising yoga, having lifestyle management, praying to God, right attitude towards life, involving in charity will result in happiness.   These competitions will improve the individual’s performance and not done with the view to compete with others.
These events will no doubt increase the confidence, focus, and inspire social, spiritual, and cultural, belonging, eliminate the shy and self-obsession in the participants. We should realize that every individual is different. We call this svabhava, or intrinsic quality of the soul. We are here to help you identify that talent which may be hidden in that individual. By improving that skill we become successful in our life. We come across many highly qualified individuals who reject their present status and end up taking up professions like horticulture, agriculture, music, yoga (like me), spirituality and remain tension free and peaceful for the rest of the life.
 This is done in the view of bringing back our culture and values which is getting gradually eroding today. These events are conducted with many difficulties. We request your co operation to make this event successful.

We request the parents to donate something more than the usual fees since organizing, these events requires, man and money power.  Since we at Ashram have been doing this we need your support to make this event successful. Those who can spare more than the usual fees, may pay 100 or 200 more, though it is not compulsory.
