Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis makes your bones weak and more likely to break. Anyone can develop osteoporosis, but it is common in older women. As many as half of all women and a quarter of men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Risk factors include : - Getting older . - Being small and thin . - Having a family history of osteoporosis. - Taking certain medicines. - Being a white or Asian woman. - Having osteopenia, which is low bone density. Osteoporosis is a silent disease. You might not know you have it until you break a bone. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health. To keep bones strong, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise and do not smoke. If needed, medicines can also help. .

Otosclerosis

Clinical otosclerosis, the single most common cause of hearing impairment, is characterized by isolated endochondral bone sclerosis of the labyrinthine capsule. Otosclerotic foci invade the stapediovestibular joint (oval window) and interfere with free motion of the stapes. Mean age of onset is in the third decade and 90% of affected persons are under 50 years of age at the time of diagnosis. Approximately 10% of affected persons develop profound sensorineural hearing loss across all frequencies (summary by Tomek et al., 1998). Genetic Heterogeneity of Otosclerosis The locus associated with otosclerosis-1 (OTSC1) has been mapped to chromosome 15q26.1. Other loci associated with otosclerosis include OTSC2 (605727) on chromosome 7q; OTSC3 (608244) on chromosome 6p; OTSC4 (611571) on chromosome 16q; OTSC5 (608787) on chromosome 3q22-q24; OTSC7 (611572) on chromosome 6q13; OTSC8 (612096) on chromosome 9p13.1-q21.11; and OTSC10 (615589) on chromosome 1q41-q44. The symbols OTSC6 and OTSC9 were reserved by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee on January 30, 2003 and February 10, 2009, respectively, for as yet unpublished loci for otosclerosis. [from OMIM]

Otosclerosis

In otosclerosis, a callus of bone accumulates on the stapes creating a partial fixation. This limits the movement of the stapes bone, which results in hearing loss. [from HPO]

Osteoporosis

Metabolic disorder associated with fractures of the femoral neck, vertebrae, and distal forearm. It occurs commonly in women within 15-20 years after menopause, and is caused by factors associated with menopause including estrogen deficiency. [from MeSH]

Disorder of bone

Your bones help you move, give you shape and support your body. They are living tissues that rebuild constantly throughout your life. During childhood and your teens, your body adds new bone faster than it removes old bone. After about age 20, you can lose bone faster than you make bone. To have strong bones when you are young, and to prevent bone loss when you are older, you need to get enough calcium, vitamin D and exercise. . There are many kinds of bone problems:: - Low bone density and osteoporosis, which make your bones weak and more likely to break . - Osteogenesis imperfecta makes your bones brittle . - Paget's disease of bone makes them weak . - Bone disease can make bones easy to break . - Bones can also develop cancer and infections. - Other bone diseases are caused by poor nutrition, genetic factors or problems with the rate of bone growth or rebuilding.

Disorder of ear

Your ear has three main parts: outer, middle and inner. You use all of them in hearing. Sound waves come in through your outer ear. They reach your middle ear, where they make your eardrum vibrate. The vibrations are transmitted through three tiny bones, called ossicles, in your middle ear. The vibrations travel to your inner ear, a snail-shaped organ. The inner ear makes the nerve impulses that are sent to the brain. Your brain recognizes them as sounds. The inner ear also controls balance. A variety of conditions may affect your hearing or balance:: -Ear infections are the most common illness in infants and young children. -Tinnitus, a roaring in your ears, can be the result of loud noises, medicines or a variety of other causes. -Meniere's disease may be the result of fluid problems in your inner ear; its symptoms include tinnitus and dizziness. -Ear barotrauma is an injury to your ear because of changes in barometric (air) or water pressure. Some ear disorders can result in hearing disorders and deafness.  [from MedlinePlus]
