What is osteoporosis?

Where do the most common breaks occur?

What are some risk factors for osteoporosis?

What is a way that doctors can detect if you have osteoporosis?

Case Study: 

Maria is a 16-year-old girl; she is slightly underweight at 124 lbs. She refuses to drink milk because it's gross. Maria is constantly on a diet to remain thin. Maria is not very active; she walks to school 1 block every day and that is it. Do you have any suggestions for her to increase calcium intake? What should Maria be warned about?
