 In young women, why bone and calcium become a problem, it is because it is possible to delay the reach of the fracture threshold, even if the bone density in the future is acquired high bone density(bone mineral density:BMD)in the young period. In addition, the acquisition of maximum bone mass(peak bone mass:PBM)is an effective intervention to prevent future osteoporosis for around 18 years old before the age of 18. Factors that affect bone density include nutrition, dietary habits, physical activity, load movement, UV irradiation, estrogen deficiency, aging, and lifestyle-related diseases.  In this section, it explains the condition and the disease which causes estrogen deficiency by low weight at an important time for the metabolism of the bone and calcium of young woman.
