With World Osteoporosis Day on Sunday, doctors have warned at a conference that the disease develops over the years without any symptoms, leading to bone loss.

Experts say the disease can be prevented by a diet rich in calcium, exercise and lifestyle changes.

Osteoporosis primarily affects women over the age of 50, according to experts.

Patients often find out they are suffering from the condition only after they break a bone, according to rheumatologist Dr. Maria Rell-Bakalarska.

The risk of developing osteoporosis is increased by smoking, alcohol abuse, a sedentary lifestyle and malnutrition.

As the population ages, the number of patients with osteoporosis is expected to increase, the IAR news agency reported.
