    • Gender: women are more likely to have osteoporosis than are men
    • Age: the risks of having osteoporosis increases with age
    • Family history: there are more chances of you suffering from osteoporosis if either of your parents has experienced a fracture due to fragile bones.
    • Hormonal levels: if the sex hormone levels in the body are lower than the normal levels, for example in the case of menopause in women, osteoporosis may occur. 
    • Dietary habits like eating very less of calcium through food may also trigger the onset of osteoporosis
    • Overactive thyroid gland can also lead to produce more thyroid hormones that can cause too much bone loss
    • Certain medications like those used for the conditions like seizures, gastric reflux, transplant rejection and cancer can cause osteoporosis
