What Is Osteoporosis 1 And Osteoporosis 2?

What Is Osteoporosis 1 And Osteoporosis 2?

When I joined this site, the box asking for whether I had Osteoporosis I or Osteoporosis II did not show the end of the item. Can anyone explain to me what the difference is? My doctor has only ever identified it as Osteoporosis (in spine) and Osteopenia (in hips). Thanks.

I Googled it and this is what I found: There are two types of osteoporosis: Type I osteoporosis (postmenopausal osteoporosis) generally develops in women after menopause when the amount of estrogen in the body greatly decreases. ... Type II osteoporosis (senile osteoporosis) typically happens after the age of 70 and affects women twice as frequently as men.
