About Idrofos 6Mg Inj

Idrofos 6Mg Inj belongs to the group of medications called 'bisphosphonates' used to prevent post-menopausal osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become weak and brittle.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Osteoporosis: It is a bone disease that weakens and thins the bones by decreasing bone density. As the density of bones decreases, they weaken and are more likely to break. Post-menopausal women are more likely to develop osteoporosis than men because, at menopause, women's ovaries stop producing oestrogen (a female hormone) that is essential to keep bones healthy. Following menopause, bone loss occurs, making bones weak and more likely to break. Signs and symptoms include back pain caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra, loss of height over time, a stooped posture, and bones that break much more easily than expected.
