Osteoporosis (OP), the most prevalent bone disease, is a significant global public health issue. It is of three different forms: post-menopausal OP, which is mostly caused by decreased estrogen; senile OP, which is primarily caused by aging; and secondary OP, which is brought on by illnesses or medications [1].
