Metabolic Bone Disease

Metabolic bone disease (MBD) is used to describe a wide spectrum of bone disease due to insufficiencies of minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamin D. They result in fractures or deformity of the bone.

MBDs include: 

  • Osteoporosis, 
  • Osteomalacia, 
  • Rickets, 
  • Renal osteodystrophy, and 
  • Osteitis deformans are also called "Paget's disease of bone".

Osteoporosis is considered the most common form of MBD. Osteoporosis can be defined as a condition of the bone in which the bone mass and density decrease resulting in a weak bone that could break easily. An elderly woman is mostly affected and sites of fractures are mostly the hips, wrists, vertebral bones. Osteoporosis does not show symptoms and may not be diagnosed until a fracture has occurred.

MBD can occur also in children. They affect the child's linear growth, produce bone deformities, impaired motor functions, and development, etc.
