Bone quality is defined by a fine balance of creating fresh new bone and breaking down old brittle bone. Any disruption of this balance or homeostasis can lead to poor quality bone, raising risk for fractures which can be very difficult to recover from. Sometimes imbalances occur due to simple aging, while certain diseases carry hereditary predilections. Kidney problems, inadequate consumption of the building blocks for bones, or calcium disorders are other potential causes of fragile bones.
