During a person’s lifetime, bones are in a constant remodelling process – the destruction and removal of old bone tissue with osteoclasts and creating new bone tissue with osteoblasts. This process is regulated by many factors, such as parathormone, Vitamin D, oestrogen, cytokines and calcitonin.
Bone structure disorder is manifested as an imbalance between destruction and creation of the bone. Some of these disorders are: osteoporosis, osteopenia, osteomalacia, and Paget’s disease. Osteoporosis is a systemic disease of the bone system which is characterized by a decrease in bone mass, changes in bone architecture, and an increased tendency toward fractures. It is mainly connected with decreased values of calcium. Human organism does not allow levels of calcium to drop beneath 2.1-2.6 mmol/L in blood, and to increase it, the body will take some calcium from the bones. This is the reason why in osteoporosis, sometimes, we can see normal levels of calcium in blood. It is mostly manifested in women after the age of 50, because of decreased protective effects of oestrogen.
