Fae Myenne Ng’s Bone

- Fae Myenne Ng’s Bone I enjoy reading Fae Myenne Ng’s Bone. I find her novel easy to read and understand. Although she included some phrases the Chinese use, I find no difficulty in understanding them, as I’m Chinese myself. The novel Bone is written in a circular narrative form, in which the story doesn’t follow the linear format where the suspense slowly builds up and finally reaches a climax stage. Rather the story’s time sequence is thrown back and forth. I find this format of writing brings greater suspense and mystery to the reader....   [tags: Fae Myenne Ng Bone]

The Bone Remodeling Cycle Of Bone

- Bone physiology is the normal process of the bone to continuously breakdown and remodels themselves. The bone remodeling cycle begins when the osteocytes determine which part of the bone needs to be remodeled and send out signals to osteoclasts to reabsorb the bone. Along with the osteoclasts, the osteoblasts follow behind osteoclasts forming new bone reshaping as it goes in order to accommodate the current stresses on the body. The two types of bone tissue are the spongy bones and the compact bones....   [tags: Bone, Osteoporosis, Vitamin D, Calcitonin]

A Brief Note On Bone Mineral Density And Bone Development

- Dear Aunt Sally, as woman reach menopause, the estrogen in their body rapidly declines. Our bones are constantly remolding themselves all through life. As estrogen is a necessary hormone in bone development, the onset of menopause and subsequent loss of estrogen can be catastrophic for our skeletal system. The bone loss starts off as Osteopenia. Osteopenia refers to having bone mineral density that is below normal levels but not low enough to be classified as osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis : A Disease Of The Bone

- Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone. The bones become weak and brittle and are prone to fractures. A person with osteoporosis can fracture a bone just by hitting a table or turning while in bed. Most people with osteoporosis keep on getting fractures because the weight of the body cannot be supported by the bone and normal body movements, including walking, will strain the bone. This condition arises when the rate of bone growth cannot keep pace with bone loss. Osteoporosis can affect any bone including the hip, wrist or spine....   [tags: Osteoporosis, Bone, Bone density, Bone fracture]

Osteoporosis Is A Bone Disease Defined By Decreasing Bone Mass

- Osteoporosis is a bone disease defined by decreasing bone mass resulting in minimal mechanical bone strength causing the patient to be at high risks of falls and fractures. The risk of bone fractures is base on bone strength and the forces applied upon it. However the severity of the disease can even cause bones to fracture with just minimal trauma from performing daily routines. Genetics, hormonal, and dietary factors are known to influence the onset of osteoporosis and its severity. There are two types of osteoporosis; Primary osteoporosis which results from old age or menopause and secondary osteoporosis defined as the loss of bone mass due to other disorders such as hyperthyroidism (Gra...   [tags: Osteoporosis, Bone, Skeletal system, Estrogen]

- The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief insight into lower extremity and in particular, long bone stress fractures. A stress fracture or hairline fracture is a fracture of the bone resulting from frequent or repetitive submaximal skeletal loading or inadvertent overuse of a particular bone. Stress fractures usually become apparent when repetitive stress applied to a bone is greater than the capacity of the bone to adapt to the repeated strain or force exerted on it (Pepper et al. 2006 p.4)....   [tags: Bone, Skeletal system, Bone fracture, Osteoporosis]

They are classified as an anti-resorbitive drug, which defines that they slow/stop the natural processes which dissolve the bone tissue. The main impact of the drug, is to reduce the osteoclastic activity and to act upon the suppression of bone remodelling, thereby decreasing the destructive effects which accompany bone disease. Understanding the role in which bisphosphonates plays in the remodelling of bone is key to understanding whether it has a potential impact in a medico-legal setting....   [tags: Bone, Skeletal system, Osteoporosis]

- Bones are rigid and dynamic biological organs where a series of active cells resident and integrate into a stiff matrix and this structure physically support and protect the tissue and organs within our body. Bone stores minerals and bone marrow within bone structure produces new blood cells. over 270 pieces of bones are in infants’ body and several of them fuse together during growth. These bones are in different shapes and have complex and hierarchical structures.

The rate of bone resorption is greater than the rate of bone formation, therefore, causing bones to become porous and under stress, can fracture (Drake, Clarke, & Lewiecki, 2015).
