Causes

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of osteopenia. These include genetics, hormonal imbalances, certain medical conditions such as celiac disease and rheumatoid arthritis, inadequate nutrition, lack of physical activity, and certain medications. Genetics play a significant role in determining bone density, and individuals with a family history of osteoporosis are at a higher risk of developing osteopenia.

Hormonal imbalances, such as a decrease in estrogen levels in women and testosterone levels in men, can also contribute to the development of osteopenia. Inadequate nutrition, especially a lack of calcium and vitamin D, can weaken bones and increase the risk of developing this condition.
