Osteoporosis (“porous bones") is a preventable and treatable disease that thins and weakens your bones,making them fragile and more likely to break. It is sometimes called a "silent disease" because it can develop gradually over many years without causing any symptoms. 

Being a female, getting older and reaching menopause are all factors that put you at higher risk of developing osteoporosis. A positive family history, some disorders and long-term use of certain medicines may also have an effect.

The good news is that you are never too young or too old to take care of your bones.Diagnosing Osteoporosis is the first step in reducing your risk. This is done through detailed medical history, proper physical examination; bone mineral density (bone density) testing, lab tests as well as some X-rays.

Is there something in your hands now that can help prevent developing weak bones? Absolutely yes!

Recipe for Healthy bones:

1. Get enough calcium each day.

2. Get enough vitamin D each day.

3. Eat a healthy diet.

4. Keep moving.

5. Don’t smoke.

6. Keep your home safe to prevent injuries and bone fractures.

7. Consult your doctor if you need to be taking medicines to prevent or treat bone loss.

YOU can actually build denser, stronger bones now in a way that may not be possible later. This will make you healthier, and it will set you up to have stronger bones when you are older – when weak bones can be serious.

Start now!

Make an appointment with your doctor and he/she can tell you where your bone health stands today!
