In general, the integumentary system collaborates with the muscular system. Theintegumentary and muscular systems work together to protect the muscles, generate heat, andimprove blood flow within the skin. When it comes to homeostasis, the integumentary systemplays several functions, including bodily protection, sensory reception, absorption, andbiochemical production. Typically, all systems inside the body will operate together in a linkedmanner to sustain the body's most fundamental tasks. Osteoporosis is a complex diseasecharacterized by reduced bone density and frailty.The glands, hair, skin, and nails, as well as the nerves, play a function in the integumentarysystem. The objective and function of it is to shield the body from any dangerous elements fromthe outside environment in a barrier-like way. IT enables the functions of retaining bodily fluids,eliminating wasted products, protecting against disease, and regulating the body's temperature.(2017, OpenStax)Osteoporosis is more frequent in older women, although men can be affected as well.Smoking, adults over the age of 65, low and high body mass index, particularly in males,and a family history of bone fractures are all risk factors for osteoporosis. Other causes ofosteoporosis include gastrointestinal diseases, type 1 and 2 diabetes, liver illness,rheumatoid arthritis, and numerous other blood-related conditions, to mention a few.Osteoporosis is frequently associated with postmenopausal hormone loss or bonedegradation caused by aging.The skeletal system relies on the integumentary system for calcium absorption to build andmaintain bone health. When exposed to sunlight, the integumentary system produces andabsorbs vitamin D, which is also created in blood capillaries in the skin. Vitamin Dimproves calcium absorption, which is necessary for bone formation and maintenance.
