If properties ofVata Doshaare increased it leads to:
Over Dryness: Over dryness can lead to break down (cracks), prone to minor fractures. Because of dryness particles cannot stay connected.

Coldness: Increases pain.
Harshness: Decreases viscosity of bone.
Fineness: May cause degeneration of bone.
Mobility: Indicates speed of the Doshaor imbalance, due to which rapid degeneration may occur.
However, Kapha Dosha And sometime Pitta Dosha are also responsible for osteoporosis by different pathology. Agni (Digestive Power) and state of Pakwashay (Duodenum) also plays a role to some extent in the pathology of osteoporosis.
