This website provides an article concerning both the history of the diagnosis of osteoprosis, and the new techniques and tools being used today. This article mentions how the only way to diagnose osteoporosis was using indicators (BMD, Bone Marrow Density) that appeared only after the disease has progressed into a later stage. Now, we can use other indicators, like bone mineralization content. They have also released a new free website that can help you assess your risk for osteoporosis, and warn you of any need for medication in the near future. My Grandma had osteoporosis when she began to reach the later stages of her life these new techniques could have warned her earlier of steps she could have taken to improve her quality of life
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that causes the bones to deteriorate and become more fragile and prone to breaking. There are many common medications for osteoporosis, but they usually come with bad side effects. They can cause nausea, swelling, and difficulty breathing and swallowing. Other than taking traditional medications, there is also hormone therapy to treat osteoporosis. Estrogen therapy is also used, but it can cause breast cancer, heart disease and endometrial cancer. There are two less common drugs that are used by injecting medicine straight into the bone. Doctors are hoping to find better treatments with less harmful side effects.
Researchers have found a correlation between COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and osteoporosis. A study of 85 hospitalized COPD sufferers showed that during flare ups of their COPD, resorption transmitters in their bones were high. This means that their bones were not absorbing fortifying nutrients and oxygen during periods of exacerbation. This increases the chance of developing, porous, weak, and brittle bones.
With the growing rates of obesity, we often hear about how important it is to eat healthy, but this article talks about how junk food can also cause osteoporosis. High sugar and saturated fat intake plays a role in osteoporosis by weakening the bones in two ways: it prevents calcium absorbsion, and saturated fats can form insoluable "soaps" that coat the intestines. Both of these effects don't allow the necessary amount of calcium to get to the body to keep bones strong. Besides just sugars and saturated fats, salt and caffeine can also play a role in osteroporosis. When they are consumed, calcium is lost. One in three women will have broken a hip by age 85 due to osteoporosis. Around 50% of Americans have been diagnosed with osteoposoris by the age of 50, which is 4% of the population. With the large intake of salt, sugar, saturated fats, and caffeine that come with the American diet, many people are at risk.
This article is about how and why ankle injuries occur. I chose to read this article because last year I broke my ankle and damaged some ligaments but I didn't really understand exactly what happened to those ligaments. According to this article half of all ankle injuries occur during an athletic event. Twenty-five thousand people sprain their ankle everyday. Also according to this article men from the ages of 15 to 25 have more of a chance of spraining their ankle than women at those ages. The way that ankle injuries are classified are by which bone is broken or tendons or ligaments are damaged. The fact that over one million people go to the emergency room for ankle injuries a year shows how often they occur! After reading this article I now have a better understanding of what tendons I messed up and what could have happened if I may have hurt them worse.
This article is about Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. Women have a higher chance of having osteoporosis. To prevent this from occurring, you want to have the optimal bone density by taking Calcium, Vitamin D, exercising, not smoking or drinking alcohol. Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease because bone loss occurs without symptoms. People may not know that they have osteoporosis until their bones become so weak that a sudden strain, bump, or fall causes a hip to fracture or a vertebra to collapse. If you do have Osteoporosis, you want to use a cane or walker when outside to prevent yourself from falling as well as avoiding slippery areas.
This article talks about the commonly used medicines used to alleviate symptoms experienced with Osteoporosis. The common drugs administered by doctors are known as biophosphonates, used to strengthen and improve bone density. Recently,it has been made clear that biophosphates are actually degrading to the bones and have been the culprit for many bone fractures in patients. 39 atypical fractures of the femur and 438 common bone fractures were experienced on average between patients taking the biophosphates. This new innovation seems to have increased the risk of bone fractures more than ever before. The risk of experiencing an atypical bone fracture has more than doubled with the new use of biophosphates.
Over 40 million people in the Untied States alone suffer from Osteoporosis. I learned that Osteoporosis is a disease which your bone mass is weaken. It makes your bones very easily prone to getting fractured. I learned that this disease can happen in all ages but is most commonly found in older people especially women. As we get older the body breaks down old bone and is replaced with new bone, but as you age more bone is broken down than replaced. I also learned that Osteoporosis is often fixable by having a proper and healthy diet, and treatment medications.
Osteoporosis, is a serious condition that can result in tremendous pain with fractures. The risk factors include aging, being female, low body weight, and low sex hormones. There are no symptoms of this bone disease until you fracture a bone. There are several ways you can test this by DEXA scan, blood test maker and bone densitometry. Up to 30% of patients suffering a hip fracture will require long-term nursing-home care. Osteoporosis has even been linked with an increased risk of death. Some 20% of women with a hip fracture will die in the subsequent year as an indirect result of the fracture. The goal of treatment of osteoporosis is the prevention of bone fractures by reducing bone loss or, preferably, by increasing bone density and strength.
This article talks about treatment for Osteoporosis there are several different forms of treatment available for people who suffer from the disease. There are multiple prescription drugs to treat the disease. Exercising, especially weight bearing exercises are very helpful or any type of excersise where you're working against gravity. To help your bones stay strong you need to eat food rich in vitamin D and calcium. Another tip is try to avoid salt and caffeine.
This article sheds light onto a newly found linkage between breast cancer and osteoporosis. The link between the two is due to the hormone of estrogen. After women have gone through menopause they produce less estrogen which is the hormone that protects the bone density. Breast cancer treatments, especially chemotherapy, lowers estrogen levels which subjects women to osteoporosis. Chemotherapy has been a direct change in women's bones because the medicine tends to decrease the density in the bones. Even without using chemotherapy, cancer itself can increase the amount of osteoclasts, cells that break down bone, causing increased risk of osteoporosis. Many women are at risk of osteoporosis due to breast cancer and the medicines that decrease estrogen.
Osteoporosis is a disease where bones fracture because of their fragility. This occurs because the bone has a low density. It's the most common type of bone disease and usually affects women over the age of 50. Statistics show that sometimes it occurs without cause, seeing as how Caucasian women are more likely to have bone loss. Osteoporosis occurs when a bone isn't replaced by a new bone or when there is too much bone being reabsorbed. One of the best ways to avoid this bone disease is to intake more calcium and vitamin D. Calcium is important for bones to form so if you don't intake enough, your bones become brittle and are at a higher risk to break. Other than taking more calcium and vitamin D, treatments to prevent osteoporosis include exercise and dieting, stop smoking, limit alcohol intake, use medicines if necessary, and reduce risks of falls.
Two of the best methods to help prevent and reverse osteoporosis and tooth decay are sea salt swishing and oil pulling along with taking an herb called Horsetail. Today, people are consuming massive amounts of hidden sugars in packaged and processed foods, sauces, condiments and soft drinks. These refined sugars lead to a near constant state of acidosis in the body which often causes serious health conditions including diabetes, osteoporosis, weight gain, tooth decay and more. Bones are made up of mainly calcium, phosphorous and magnesium but they also contain silica. Studies show that taking calcium supplements can actually increase bone loss because without sufficient silica, the body cannot make use of the extra calcium. This extra calcium may even be dangerous to your health. That's why taking horsetail can be important because it has silica in it and if your body has sufficient silica it can take in the calcium it needs.
This article discusses what osteoporosis is as well as some facts about osteoporosis. Before I read this article, I never realized how many people were affected by osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is known as a "silent disease" because it is often unnoticed until a bone breaks. It is a condition where your bones become porous and more fragile. As a result someone who is afflicted with osteoporosis faces a higher chance of breaking their bones. I also learned that osteoporosis affects mostly women, in fact 80% of people who have osteoporosis are women. Osteoporosis is the most common case of hip fractures which are very serious fractures that can result in disability and death. I also learned that Osteoporosis affects 44 million Americans at a cost of about 17 billion dollars annually.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become frail and can therefore result in fractures of the wrists, hips, spine, etc. Because our bones become weaker as we age, there is an increased risk of the disease. Osteoporosis occurs when too much bone is removed and not enough new bone is rebuilt. Factors that lead to an increased risk of the disease include smoking, lack of exercise, poor diet, too much alcohol consumption etc. We have the power to control so many aspects of our life including our diet and our exercise routines, however some of the things we cannot control include our family history, being female, our ethnicity, etc. Females tend to be more probe to osteoporosis than men. It's really important to be proactive in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and practicing good habits to help delay/prevent osteoporosis. Females over 65 and Males over 70 should take a bone density test.
This article is about a new osteoporosis drug combination that outperforms current alternatives-denosumab and teriparatide. Osteoporosis drugs like denosumab are antiresorptive: they curb bone loss by blocking the action of cells that break down bone during the normal process of bone remodeling. In contrast, teriparatide stimulates the creation of new bone by increasing the activity of osteoblasts. A study was given to women who had osteoporosis, and those women were treated with either teriparatide or denosumab, or a combination of both. Researchers found that the combination of the two greatly improved their bone mineral density. With this new information, doctors can further their studies and find a solution for osteoporosis.
This article focuses on the story of Sally Field, a 60-year-old actress who developed osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is an onset disease that thins the bones. It is common in older women, especially if they have gone through menopause which drops estrogen levels. When Field first started struggling with osteoporosis, she used hormone replacement therapy to increase her bone density. Unfortunately, HRT was found to cause serious harm and lead to heart disease, stroke and breast cancer. When Sally Field stopped using HRT her bones became increasingly thinner until she discovered a new medicine, Boniva. She takes Boniva once a month to slow bone loss in her body. She says this drug has been successful in improving her bone health. She also works actively to raise awareness about osteoporosis.
Osteoperosis can be defined as a cause to the bones to become brittle or weak. This is very harmful to ones bones because a fall, bending over or even coughing can cause a fracture. The fact that coughing, an everyday thing, can cause a bone fracture just behooves me. My mom has borderline Osteoporosis, this scares me because her doctor told her to be very careful because if it gets worse and she happens to fall, she could break her back and that would be hard to recover from. I hope I don't get Osteoporosis when I'm older. There typically are no symptoms in the early stages of bone loss. But once bones have been weakened by osteoporosis, you may have signs and symptoms that include: back pain, caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra, loss of height over time, a stooped posture, a bone fracture that occurs much more easily than expected. But this can be prevented by receiving adequate amounts of calcium, vitamin D, and regular exercise.
It was incredibly interesting to read about how exerising does not make more risks of broken bones and premature deaths for people with osteoporosis, rather than helps prevent them. Exercise at any age, helps fortify bones, maintain balance, and even prevent to a cerain extent osteoporosis. It does not have to be a rigorous series of exercise, it can be as easy as just walking, or lifting a little bit of weights. k Another reason to eep doing exercise!! =D
This article talked about the reasons osteoporosis is most likely to be found in women than in men. It happens to be that my grandma and my mom both have osteoporosis. The reasons women are most likely to have osteoporosis is becuase women are born with less bone desnity than men. That was something i did not know. the more i read, the more i learned that estrogen is also a big part to do with osteoporsis. Estrogen plays a big part in keeping your bones strong and healthy, that why when women get older (around the time they go through their menopause) they are at a even higher risk of osteoprosis. Although, osteoporosis is more common in women than in men, this article re-states the fact that men can also have osteoporosis. This fact especially amazed me, "The reality is that 80,000 men experience osteoporosis-related fractures every year, and close to 23,000 die as a result of fracture-related complications."
Sorry Mrs. Riley, i tired to re-submit it with my last name and period but it wouldnt let me!
This article describes several new was in which osteoporosis is being treated in the elderly. This includes hormone treatment, as well as other ways to predict and prevent osteoporosis from developing.
I didn't realize how serious this affliction was in the elderly, but I realize now that this is a serious problem, and should be focused on ifurther research. This website goes on to describe the advantages in this new form of treatment, which are many. I hope that in the future, osteoporosis will no longer me as prevalent as it is now. It also talks about the importance of Vitamin D in one's system, and how sunlight can be a very important factor in preventing the development of osteoporosis
This article is explaining what osteoporosis is. My grandmother has osteoporosis in her hips. I now know that this means her hips are very weak and brittle. This occurs when the new creation of bone doesn't keep up with the removal of old bone. My grandmother was more at risk of getting it than my grandfather because this disease is more common in white women that have gone through menopause. One way my grandmother could help prevent this in her other bones is to have a healthy diet or take medications. She could do weight bearing exercises to strengthen her already weak bones.
Osteoporosis, also known as "porous bone," is a disease where bone becomes weak, brittle, and easy to break. Around 34 million Americans, mostly the elderly, have osteoporosis. It is sometimes referred to as a "silent disease" because bone loss has no symptoms. Often a person doesn't know they have Osteoporosis until they break a bone. The probability of a person developing Osteoporosis depends on the strength of your bones due to calcium and other minerals it has absorbed over the years. The amount of bone a person has in their thirties can help determine the possibility of developing Osteoporosis later in life. You can prevent this disease early on by getting tons of calcium, vitamin D, and exercise. Exercise early in life boosts bone mass and exercise later in life helps maintain it.
This article discusses the results of a clinical trial testing out a new treatment for osteoporosis. The trial combined teriparatide which is a bone building drug and denosumab which is a targeted therapy to stop bone loss. In order to compare the results from receiving both or just one of the drugs, the subject group was divided into three. One group receiving teriparatide, another receiving denosumab, and the last one receiving both. Then low dose x-rays were taken of the spine, neck, and hip to measure any changes. BMD (bone mineral density) increased by 4.2% in the neck and by 4.9% in the hip for those receiving both drugs. The results showed that this new treatment increased BMD better than other treatments currently on the market for postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.
This article discussed ways to both prevent osteoporosis and help your strengthen your bones once diagnosed with osteoporosis all by simply changing your diet. Your diet is crucial to a happy and healthy life. Osteoporosis is diagnosed when bones become brittle and fragile. It is very dangerous because brakes and fractures can be the result of minor falls. When it comes to having strong bones you body needs plenty of Calcium and Vitamin D. Calcium is the key to strong bones, and vitamin D is what helps your body to use the calcium. Sunlight is a natural and easy source of vitamin D. Foods rich in vitamin D are fish, egg yolks, and leafy greens. Calcium rich foods are any kind of dairy products. Some other cheats to strong bones are limiting alcohol consumption, caffeine and carbonated beverages because all of these can interfere with your body's ability to absorb calcium. All of these things can lead to stronger and healthier bones, and hopefully prevent osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that causes bones to lose bone mineral density and bone mass, which causes bones to be fragile and more likely to break or fracture. Osteoporosis is a disease that gets worse over time, and the symptoms are usually not visible until you fracture or break a bone, or a test can show whether or not you have low bone mineral density. There are approximately 12 million people suffering from osteoporosis, and 9.1 million are women. Women are more likely to get osteoporosis because they can lose up to 15% of their bone mineral density when they go throw menopause. There is no cure for osteoporosis, but several ways to slow down the disease.
This website gave me some fascinating information about osteoporosis and how, in lamens terms, means brittle bones. On this website is also information on which bones are most affected such as the hips. Information that I found most interesting is that osteoporosis is most common in white and Asian females who have already gone through menopause. What I find that is also interesting is that osteoporosis occurs when the bone tissue does not renew itself quick enough.
Osteoporosis is one of the most common bone diseases in the world and most people probably know the basic facts. A common cause is an insufficient intake of calcium which can occur when a person is a young adult but the symptoms are mostly experienced in old age. Because the bones are weaker and have lost a lot of mass it's much easier to break bones. Dull pain in the muscles and skeleton presages the first signs of this disease. For treatment it is critical to decrease mineral loss and take in about 1000 mg of calcium a day. Daily excersize is also crucial to increase bone density. 18 million people in American have low bone mass and 80% of people with osteoporosis are women.
The most common type of bone disease is osteoporosis. This disease will cause nearly 50% of elderly women to have a fractured hip, rib or vertebrae. Osteoporosis happens when the body cannot form enough new bone or when too much existing bone bone is reabsorbed by the body. A lack in calcium will greatly increase the odds of getting osteoporosis. During menopause when there is a drop in estrogen there is also a greater probability of osteoporosis.
According to MayoClinic.com Osteoporosis is an affliction which causes bones to become brittle or frail. These bones are more likely to break where ordinarily, the body could avoid damaage. Falling, coughing, or stress could easily cause a fracture, often occuring in the wrists or hips. Osteoporosis occurs in men and women of all ages, however white and asian women past menopause are more suseptable.
Osteoporosis is a disease where your bones have large pores in them as opposed to a honeycomb-like structure that normal bones have. This is due to your bones losing density and it being more weak which makes it prone to breaking. It is very common. In fact, 1/2 woman will break a bone due to osteoporosis. It's actually a big deal because it can prevent you from doing things you love. It is also very costly for treatment and therapy. I think my grandma has osteoporosis maybe.
If you are older than fifty, getting osteoporosis, or a condition where your bones become weak and brittle, becomes a serious risk. I chose to read an article on the several things that can cause this disease and ways to prevent it. Things from lifestyle choices, family history, medical conditions, to side effects of medicines can all cause osteoporosis. Unfortunately, some of these factors are out of our control. It is recommended to be proactive and try to prevent this disease from further developing. Some things one should try to avoid if in risk of osteoporosis are alcohol consumption, anorexia, cigarette smoking, inactivity, lead exposure and poor diet. Over ten million american are affected by this disease, so prevention is key.
This article argues the necessity of bone density tests in women who are not at high risk for bone fractures. The study's lead investigator says that bone density testing has been oversold. Through studies, they have found and been surprised by how slow osteoporosis progressed in women. bisphosphonatesis have previously been prescribed to help prevent osteoporosis but doctors now feel like it is no longer needed. They also no longer consider bone density measures to be the sole reason that women need to be treated. The study included 5,000 over the age of 67 for a decade. The women were tested before the study and did not have osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis weakens bones over time which makes it easier for bones to break. It is most common in older women. The risk factors are getting older, certain medicines, having a family history of osteoporosis etc. You may not know you have it unless you start breaking bones. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check on your bone health. Which is why its so important to eat a healthy diet with Calcium and Vitamin D, exercise daily and no smoking.
I found this article interesting because it discussed the uncommon diagnosis of Juvenile Osteoporosis. There are two types of Juvenile Osteoporosis. They are "secondary osteoporosis" (loss of bone as result of medication taken for another preexisting condition) and "idiopathic osteoporosis" (when there is no identifiable cause of osteoporosis in a child). No matter what causes it, juvenile osteoporosis can be a significant problem because it occurs during the child’s prime bone-building years. From birth through young adulthood, children steadily accumulate bone mass, which peaks sometime before age 30. The greater their peak bone mass, the lower their risk for osteoporosis later in life. After people reach their mid thirties, bone mass typically begins to decline—;very slowly at first but increasing in their fifties and sixties.
I find this article very interesting because not only can your weight effect your bones but also what you eat. They say that caffiene can cause calcium to deteriorate at high velocity. I would have never of thought that at all. Osteoperosis will even effect baby's when they are fed a poor diet as they grow up. Not only will they gain weight but also have terrible calcium deposits to prevent osteoperosis. I find it amazing how eating healthy can change a life. I just wish that 12 million Americans who have osteoperosis, could know that.
This article is about symptoms and affects of Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease where a person's bones start to weaken and over time they become more susceptible to fractures. According to Webmd osteoporosis can occur at any age. Most people seem to think that this disease is only acquired in the elderly but that is not the case. Symptoms of this disease are not extremely noticeable. There can be a shortening in height and it can be extremely painful. It is said that these symptoms are always quiet which makes knowing you have this disease very minuscule. Osteoporosis can be so painful that doing little things such as hugging someone or walking around can be uncomfortable. It is also known that as a young person you can be active and doing the things you want to do and still end up getting Osteoporosis. You just never know!
This article is very interesting because it describes how Osteoporosis, although often treated with only one drug at a time, may be better combatted with a combination of two. the two drugs mentioned are teraparitide, a bone-building drug, and denosumab, whichhelps stop bone loss. Because both drugs seemingly represent two sides of the same coin, it provides a good defense/offense strategy for combatting the disease. According to a study in the effects of the drugs, the combination of both drugs together produced better results - an increase in BMD (Bone Mineral Density) in key areas such as the spine, hip, and femoral neck. This find could greatly benefit quality of life for those affected by the disease in the near future.
In this article the author interviews Maria Fernandez, who was diagnosed with osteoporosis at the young age of 49. Maria started using a new treatment called Prolia in the form of an injection every 6 months. Prolia was approved by the FDA in 2010 and not only improved Maria's condition by strengthened her bones. Due to positive results like this, doctor's are currently warmly accepting Prolia. But besides Prolia, many factors can help after being treated for Osteoporosis. Dr. Bernard Brijbag is also interviewed in this article and recommends a healthy diet rich with vitamin D,excercise focused on weight training, and limited smoking and drinking.The article also discusses prevention which is crucial early on in Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis does have a genetic factor to it but the steps you take in your life can benefit you later down the road. Prevention and early diagnoses are highly recommended by doctors.
The article I chose is from the US News online health section. The article is about a new study conducted about Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease which causes bones to become more fragile and break or fracture easier due to incorrect bone marrow density. The article explains a study where they tested to see if obese but other wise healthy individuals are protected against osteoporosis as many people assume. However, as they analyzed the results they found that being obese actually increases your chances of developing the disease. The researchers found that people with high levels of fat in there blood also had high levels of bone marrow fat which can lead to osteoporosis. Because this was just one study, it is not definitive that obesity will lead to osteoporosis. However it is good to consider.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones are more likely to break. From this article, I learned that the word, osteoporosis, literally means porous bone. You become much more likely to have a fracture from this disease when you become older with age. Once you find out you have this disease, which will most likely only be once you have a fracture, there are now ways to treat it. The most common fractures are to your hip, spine, and wrists. One thing that made me realize how common these fractures are is that one is said to occur every 3 seconds. If you have a fracture you need to treat it and maybe have surgery as soon as possible.
Class period 2
I learned that osteoporosis a disease in which the bones (specifically the hip, spine and wrist) become weak, can occur to anyone at any age. However, people who most commonly get osteoporosis are older women. In the United States 40 million people already have osteoporosis. Women who are old and thin are at a greater risk of having osteoporosis. Genetics, smoking, drinking, and low estrogen and testosterone levels are all factors that can increase the likelyhood of getting osteoporosis. You can prevent osteoporosis by eating a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D and by exercising. Osteoporosis is a silent disease, you may not know you have it till you fall and break a bone.
Ron Zernicke, dean of the University of Michigan's School of Kinesiology, and Cy Frank, director of the Alberta Bone and Joint Heath Institution, have recently confirmed that a poor diet can lead to the development of osteoporosis. Diets high in sugar and saturated fat prevent the absorption of calcium, and table salt increases calcium loss in the urine. Coffee and soda, some of Americans' favorite drinks, may also increase the risk of osteoporosis. According to Linda K. Massey, PhD., every 100 mg of caffeine is a loss of 6 mg of calcium. Strangely, although tea is caffeinated, studies have shown that it does not harm the body and may actually improve bone health in older women.
This article is about Norian, and injecting synthetic bone cement for osteoporosis. It's inventor was not a medical doctor, but a marine biologist and geologist. Brent Constanz had the idea to put how coral quickly produces minerals and to apply that to osteoporosis. Norian is an injected paste that hardens quickly and gains strength from the crystallization of the carbonated apatite . In effect, the injected calcium phosphate formed a composite with new natural bone. Spreading the use of the method caused the most challenges. The team was able to integrate chemistry into the cement formula, and form a new company, skelekinetics
This is a detailed description of what Osteoporosis is, how it is caused, and how it can be treated and prevented, written by an MD. Osteoporosis is when bones lose their density and become compressed and sponge-like, resulting in a high likelihood of fractures. The disease is normally caused by lack of exercise, lack of calcium and vitamin D, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and a history of osteoporosis in the family. This disease can be prevented by living a healthy lifestyle and creating good habits like daily exercise and eating healthy.
This article is very interesting because it discusses new research about Osteoporosis, the disease in which bones become more and more fragile as they lose density. The current way to test for osteoporosis is to take a DEXA scan which shows how much of a bone is present, but not the internal structure. Khosla has been studying how bones are constructed using new imaging and computer techniques to look at structural characteristics. Their comparison is to metal bridges.You could have two bridges with the same medal in them, but one could be more sturdy by the way it is constructed. They can take the density of each piece and estimate the overall strength of the bone. They believe once some of these techniques are mastered they will eventually be approved for clinical use.
This article is about Dr. Christopher Recknor who specialized his career on osteoporosis. The fractures of his patients have gone down from 14% to 3% since he started treating them. He's been trying cryotherapy, which is usually used for athletes. It's where you apply nitrogen gas to the skin for about 30 seconds, and it briefly lowers the body temperature, which stimulates regulatory functions of the body. The bonus about this treatment is it helps all over the body, and increases the blood flow everywhere rather than just one area. Another treatment he's looking into is Nanotechnology, which he is hoping will develop in the future.
This article from Natural News is a great reminder that junk food doesn't just result in obesity but also causes osteoporosis. "Ron Zernicke and Cy Frank have verified that sugar and fat intake plays a role in the development of conditions like osteoporosis through weakening the bones." Diets containing lots of sugars and fats prevent calcium absorption, and saturated fats can form insoluble "soaps" that will coat the intestines. These effects will not allow the necessary amount of calcium to keep the bones strong. 12 million Americans have been diagnosed with osteoporosis at age 50. That is close to 4% of the country's population.
This article is about new research about the disease of osteoporosis that has recently surfaced to give us a better understanding of osteoporosis. My grandma has this disease to it is very interesting to hear about the disease from medical professionals. One of the the techniques that they use to measure osteoporosis is that they use a DEXA scan (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) which measures the density of bones in a patient. They are also using computers to make a 3-D model of the bones so that the doctors can see what's wrong with the bones. I think this is all really interesting and if you read the article, I think you will be interested as well.
This article explains several different ways that people can help fight osteoporosis. Most of these methods have been tested and/or created in the past ten years, involving nanotechnology and other types of therapy. This means that many people suffering from osteoporosis have multiple options to best fit their needs. The part in the article that really spoke to me was when one of the doctors explained why he began to study osteoporosis specifically. His grandmother had struggled with osteoporosis for years, and watching her inspired him to try and help heal those with this disease. The refracture rate has significantly decreased under his care. I also have a similar story relating to cancer and I hope to be able to study the disease specifically and either help treat it or find a cure.
This article is about the new theory that a poor diet can lead to Osteoporosis. Ron Zernicke, the dean of University of Michigan's School of Kinesiology, and Cy Frank, the executive director of the Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institution, have worked together and found that sugar and fat intake affects the role in the development of Osteoporosis by weakening of bones. A diet high in junk food, sugar and saturated fats weaken bones by preventing calcium absorption and forming insoluble "soaps" that coat the intestines. It is said that about 12 millions adult have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis by age 50, which is about 4% of the population. To lower the number of people who obtain this disease in the future, people need to cut back on their sugar, saturated fats, and salt intake. I think this article is very interesting and important because I never knew that your diet could increase your chances of getting diseases other than diabetes. It has caused me to even further realize the importance of having a healthy, balanced diet.
This article explains the facts about osteoporosis, how it's a disease that makes bones more fragile and lose calcium and minerals within the bone. It also has very specific examples of the effects of osteoporosis on humans, their bones, and their lives. It gives a lot of the symptoms one could experience, as well as what a person could do to prevent osteoporosis.
My article is about medication helping osteoporosis. I never knew there were any treatments for osteoporosis, in this article it states medication is a very good start to helping improve systems of osteoporosis. It states that bisphosphonates are the main type of medication used to help treat it. Bisphosphonates Slow the Bone breakdown process and help The risk of rapid bones breaking down due to osteoporosis. I thought this article was interesting because although there is no perfect cure for osteoporosis there are different things you can do to improve the condition.
Osteoporosis occurs when bones deteriorate. Many people believe that you shouldn't exercise with it. However, low stress activities have proven to reduce it's symptoms and sometimes even reverse them. These activities include riding a bike and weight training. 20-30 minutes of activity a day and 3-5 days a week is recommended. Even frail seniors should keep exercising as long as they don't partake in high-impact activities.
In this short article it explains how osteoporosis starts, facts about osteoporosis, and how to cure osteoporosis. I do not know anyone who has osteoporosis, so this article was a big help explaining it. Osteoporosis occurs when creation of a new bone does not keep up with the old one. Bones become weak and brittle, and the littlest things can cause a fracture. The most common areas where osteoporosis occur are the wrist, spine, and hip. Osteoporosis can affect everyone but has a high rate for elderly white and asian people. Osteoporosis is a very painful disease that I'm glad I have not had to witness, and hope not to witness it in the future.
Osteoporosis is a disease where your bones become more fragile and are more likely to fracture. Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease. This disease is more common on elderly woman. When this happens your body fails to form enough new bone. This can occur without any reason, sometimes having bone loss and thin bones is passed down through family. The cause of bone loss can be because of being in a bed all day, medical conditions or because of taking medicines. It also can be because of the absence of menstrual periods for a long period of time, a family history of osteoporosis, drinking a large amount of alcohol, low body weight and by smoking. Their are not many symptoms for osteoporosis mainly people fracture something and then learned that they have the disease. The treatment will recuire lifestyle changes. Plus the give you medicine to get better.
Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease. This causes bones to become brittle or weak. It is often referred to as the "silent disease" because it often goes unnoticed until an injury is sustained. There are no symptoms in the early stages of osteoporosis. Sometimes bone loss occurs without any cause. Older white women are more likely to have bone loss. There can be loss of height over time. I found this article very interesting because I didn't know how common this disease was, especially among women.
This article discusses the causes, symptoms, exams, and treatment associated with Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease in which bones loose density and become fragile. When the body fails to form new bone or when too much existing bone is reabsorbed by the body symptoms can occur. Risk factors include lack of vitamin D or calcium in ones diet, a drop of estrogen in women, a drop of testosterone in men, smoking, low body weight, and a family history of osteoporosis. Symptoms do not occur in the early stages of osteoporosis and sometimes people will discover they have the condition only after fracturing a bone. However, over time pain slowly occurs and there can be a loss of height and development of stooped posture. Bone mineral density testing can be preformed in order to diagnose osteoporosis and predict your risk of future injuries. Treatments vary depending on the severity of the condition and include lifestyle changes, medicines to strengthen bones, and safe exercise.
This article explains how Childers get osteoporosis. At first I thought this was on,y something found in adults, however this article shows that it ca be found in children too. The article explains that children get it from other medical illnesses, poor diet, or lack of exercise. It also lists some of the symptoms such as lower back and hip pain. It also states that it is very rare for doctors to not know what caused the osteoporosis, meaning that they usually can tell what caused it.
I feel this article is great for the many women and men who struggle with Osteoporosis. My grandmother struggles with Osteoporosis and breaks her bones frequently, actually, she has a broken ankle right now and struggles with daily activities. I would definitely send her this article knowing she loves fruits, maybe this will help her strengthen her bones. Fruits are delicious, and if they can help with daily problems, well that's even better. Something that I learned from this article is that there are more women suffering with Osteoporosis than men. I feel this is because women tend to be less healthy than men in what they eat, just because they are more careful in the way they look from the outside than what you need to "look good" or be healthy on the inside.
This article discusses how important exercise is to help maximize your bone production, which occurs by about the age of 35. If you have been active your entire life you have reduced your risk of developing bone thinning disease, osteoporosis. I found this article interesting because I thought exercise made your bones more frail because they are always active. But according to this article some of the best exercise to strengthen bones and reduce the risk of fractures is weight lifting and body weight exercises such as walking. Weight lifting causes your body to work against gravity in a standing, sitting, or prone position. All of which strengthen your bones so you are less likely to develop osteoporosis as you age.
In this article scientist from leading researching facilities from the Hospitol of Special Surgery, Yale University, and Villanova University have made ground breaking news. It's proven that when you slip and fall a pair of joint proteins called osteopontin and osteocalcin are separated to a part of one hundred atoms. Before recent research there was no way to help fix this problem until they came upon osteocalcin. This vital joint protein could help protect us from obtaining osteoporosis. Unfortunately the researchers barely have any intel on this protein but have come to the conclusion that the consumption of vitamin K could be the cure. In my opinion, the hard part about this whole situation will be getting people to consume vitamin K because its mostly present in green, leafy vegetables which isn't everyone's favorite. This could be something in the near future that parents might want to enforce on their kids to protect their bone health.
This article is all about how bone loss can lead to developing Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is described, in this article, as a condition that makes empty holes inside bone tissue. I learned that it is hard to tell if you have Osteoporosis because Osteoporosis does not have any symptoms. But over time you will know that your bones have become weaker and more susceptible towards damaging them by noticing loss of height, increased curvature of the spine, and difficulty with movement. You can avoid bone loss by: eating a bone-healthy diet, getting Vitamin-D, staying physically active, and considering osteoporosis medications. It is pretty crazy how you can develop such a harmful condition without even knowing it. This is why seeing a doctor regularly, can really make a difference.
This article follows up on a small trial testing the effects of the combined use of teriparatide and denosumab on patients with osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a condition that causes bones to become fragile making them more likely to break. The goal of the study was to strengthen bone mineral density, known as BMD. Following the trial it was clear there was an improvement in BMD when the two medicines were combined rather than taken alone. Although, this trial proved successful there are still many questions and further research to be determined.
As most of us know Osteoporosis is a bone disease which the bones become weak and vulnerable to the point of breaking. Early signs of Osteoporosis include joint pains, difficulty standing/applying pressure on given area, and sitting up straight. As your bone density continues to deteriorate, the easier it becomes to fracture or snap the bone. My article discusses how the cure to this disease could potentially be the combination of Drug therapy. Right now the main form of treatment for Osteoporosis has been Denosumab, which is an antiresorptive that blocks the action of cells that break down bone. However today they believe that combining the drug, steriparatide and denosumab are the most efficient and effective way to help the disease. And according to the results, the combination therapy improved BMD at the spine, hip, and femoral neck better than denosumab did alone.
This article found in Mnt (medical news today) discusses the founding of a new bone density drug. This drug involves combination of both Teraperatide, a bone building drug, and densumad, a bone-loss preventive drug. Results have shown that this drug combination has improved Osteoporosis pain better than either drug on its own.
I knew what osteoporosis was before but I thought it was interesting that there were so many factors. I had no idea that hormones that were a factor in osteoporosis. I know that lifestyle choices and eating habits are always a factor. I was surprised that low hormones could increase your chances of osteoporosis. Same with other medications I know that some medications have been proven to increase your chances of cancer but I didn't think that osteoporosis could be caused by other medications. I found it interesting that with the amount if technology we have that we don't have more cures and aids in fixing and "healing" osteoporosis.
I love tea and this just makes tea for me so much better because this article is about how certain teas can be beneficial to strengthening bones and preventing osteoporosis. These teas have so many good minerals and vitamins that they can even speed up bone healing after a fracture and strengthening your teeth. I think this article is interesting because its amazing how something so delicious and easy such as tea can be so helpful and beneficial to ones health. The next time I break a bone or maybe just even on the regular I will start to drink these kinds of tea to get my health to its peak state.
Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which loss of tissue causes bones to become fragile and brittle. This, according to the dictionary, is may be the result of vitamin D or calcium deficiency or hormonal changes. Thankfully, however, the pain of osteoporosis has been proven to lessen through exercise. Exercise also strengthens the bone, helps prevent further bone loss, strengthens the muscles, and helps to prevent bone fractures. It also makes people feel better altogether. Nevertheless, those with osteoporosis need to take care when choosing exercises so as to not injure their already weakened bones. Personal trainers and doctors will be able to let patients know which types of exercise and strengthening to avoid and which types to focus on in order to obtain the best results. The following are a list of recommended exercises for those with osteoporosis: yoga, tai chi, walking, and weight training. Weight training will build muscle mass that will protect the bones, and it will also help make them grow denser. Yoga and tai chi will help with strength and balance. Walking is also very beneficial to those suffering from osteoporosis. Essentially, exercise is highly recommended to improve osteoporosis in patients!
The article I read was about cyclists having increased risk of osteoporosis. The article tells about how cycling is an amazing cardiovascular excersize but does not have the qualities that help build bone mass. Weight bearing excersize such as weight lifting or crossfit are much more beneficial to the body for building bone mass and preventing osteoporosis. Studies have been done that show there is a correlation between cycling and increased chance of osteoporosis, swimmers are also at risk.
Osteoporosis is a disease that results in the weakening and brittling of bones. This is also know as the silent disease because most people don't realize they have it until they break something. Osteoporosis is found in over 34 million americans today. After reading some of the signs of having this it makes me think my grandma might have this. She constantly complains of back pain and has shrunk 3 in since her 30's. The website also says thyroid disease and thyroid medication can increases the risk of Osteoporosis. Thyroid disease runs in the family and she has been taking medication for it for years. After reading some of the ways to avoid this disease it makes me feel a little better. Eating healthy and getting plenty of calcium and exercise reduce the risks. Luckily I do a lot of these things so I'm not as worried about my future.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that cannot be given to one another. It causes the bones to be frail and brittle. Typically those with osteoporosis tend to break their hip, wrist, or spinal bones. When someone has osteoporosis the insides of their bones which typically look like a honeycomb become spaced out and less dense. Around the age of 30 peoples bone mass stops increasing and the goal for bone health is to keep as much as possible for as long as you can. Osteoporosis is referred to as "silent" because of the lack of symptoms it causes, people who have it may not know the have it until a sudden strain, bump, or fall causes a bone to break.
Osteoporosis is a condition where a person's bones become brittle and frail and they can break or fracture from a fall to something as simple as a cough. The condition develops the body is unable to make new bone tissue faster than the rate at which the body is absorbing old bone tissue. This article is about how Mayo Clinic has identified five major risk factors linked with the condition. The first is genetic factors, such as women are more likely to develop the condition due to smaller bone structure. Next is hormone levels, as both women and men age their sex hormones decrease leading to bone deterioration. Next is your diet, of course everything you eat effects your health someway but diets that are low in calcium can lead to early life bone loss. Certain types of medications that are used to treat depression, cancer, and seizures have been known to increase someone's chances of developing osteoporosis. And last is your lifestyle, people who smoke, drink alcohol, and live a sedentary lifestyle are more susceptible to developing the condition.
Osteoporosis is a disease which decreases bone mass, I read an article specifically about Juvenile Osteoporosis. This is a rare disease in children, which affects mainly affects children between the ages of 8-14. Osteoporosis can be caused by another bone disease such as luekemia which can make bones extremely weak and vulnerable to breaking. The main symptom is severe growing pains and weakness. I think this is a horrendous disease that should be prevented by making sure to intake plenty of calcium and do anything else to help strength your bones.
I found this article very interesting. It talks about how fat in organs and blood increases your risk of osteoporosis. This study found that having higher levels of fat in their liver, muscle tissue and blood have high doses of fat in their bone marrow, which can give you a higher risk of osteoporosis. Scientists have found that Obesity is not protective against bone loss. In their study they focused more on bone marrow fat, where stem cells can develope into osteo blasts, which are responsible for bone formation. The results showed that people with more liver and muscle fat had higher levels of fat in their bone marrow. HDL Cholesterol was associated with bone marrow fat content.
On the Discovery Health website I found an article with 10 Facts and things to know about Osteoperosis. I found this article to be very interesting. The things I found most interesting were numbers 1,4,8. One said that over 50% of women over the age of 50 will develop osteoposis in their life, and that over 22 million women have low bone density before the age of 50. I was aware that alcohol, smoking, and eating disorders can up your chances of developing Osteoperosis but I never thought over exercising could as fact 4 says. No matter how many calcium supplements, medications, or regular exercise someone does Osteoperosis can never be completely cured the patient will always struggle with having weak bones( number 8). These three facts really surprised and enlightened me about the topic of Osteoperosis.
Osteoporosis is the most abundant kind of bone disease. It is mostly prevalent in women's wrists, ankles and hips making them fragile and more likely to fracture. The lack of calcium and minerals in the bone make it lose density. This is what causes the fragileness. Because bone is living tissue it is constantly being replaced by new bone. Osteoporosis is when this does not occur or when too much of the old bone is absorbed by the body. Although a lot of osteoporosis has to do with diet and the amount of calcium you consume, it can also be hereditary. This article gives the basic guidelines of osteoporosis in how it works and what it is. I found it to be extremely simple yet successfully informational.
This article is about putting treatments and other preventives into perspective instead of stressing over the side effects these treatments may have. After reading this article I was surprised to learn that Osteoporosis is actually under diagnosed and under treated. This is because many people who have it don't take a bone density test and are afraid of the side effects of treatment. Drugs known as bisphosphonates have been used to treat and prevent osteoporosis as they have been found to reduce the risk of fragility fracture by 30-50%. The biggest side effect of this drug includes a fracture of the femur or thigh bone, which is actually considered "minuscule."
This article is interesting because it tells about a marine biologist who found that by studying coral and how it can quickly produce minerals he has been able to apply it to making a kind of cement injection that can help cure osteoporosis. This article was personal to me because my mother has slight osteoporosis and she has to take many different medications to slow it down so it is nice to know that there are cures and treatments out there that might actually help stop it rather than just slow it down.
Osteoporosis occurs most commonly in white and Asian women post menopause. What happens is bone naturally absorbs and replaces itself over time, but when the bone absorbs faster than the body can replace it, osteoporosis is diagnosed. During osteoporosis the bones get very weak and easily susceptible to injury. Mild stress, including bending over and sneezing, are ways to break these bones. The only way doctors can accurately diagnose osteoporosis is through a bone mineral density test. A couple of ways to help prevent osteoporosis include consuming a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, and do not smoke.
Osteoporosis means "porous bone"— basically meaning that this condition develops when bone is no longer replaced as quickly as it is removed. Factors such as aging, physical inactivity, and excessive alcohol intake may cause osteoporosis. The loss of bonetends to occur most in the spine, lower forearm above the wrist, and upper femur or thigh-the site of hip fractures.Spine fractures, wrist fractures, and hip fractures are common injuries in older persons. Treatment methods can reduce bone loss, but there are no proven methods of restoring lost bone. Your family doctor can help tell how much bone has been lost. Treatment is best when started early.
Reading this extremely interesting article, I learned that osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease. Not only did i learn this very valuable information, but i also learned that because of osteoporosis about half of all women over the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra in their lifetime. I already knew that bones are living tissues, however I was not aware that existing bones were being constantly replaced by new bones! As a matter of fact, osteoporosis happens when the body fails to form enough bones (the ones constantly replacing). Osteoporosis can also occur when too much existing bone is reabsorbed by the body. I am very thankful I found this article as I did not know much about osteoporosis. I now know that there are no symptoms in the early stages of osteoporosis. Many times, people will have a fracture before learning that they have the osteoporosis. Osteoporosis can lead to a loss of height over time; 6 inches in some cases. On top of that, a stooped posture or kyphosis may develop.
This article talks about how a common drug used to treat Osteoporosis is meant to prevent bone loss, but it also prevents new bone formation. The drug zoledronic produces higher levels of sclerostin which is the biomarker that inhibits bone formation. As zoledronic is widely used as treatment, doctors are now saying that what would be the best way to improve the treatment would be to add another drug. The goal of this drug would be to stop the effects zoledronic has on sclerostin levels. I think it's very necessary to lowersclerostin levels because if someone has osteoporosis and breaks a bone, it would be extremely difficult for them to heal that bone. I also worry about adding another drug though because it scares me that nowadays the solution is always to add more drugs. I think sometimes we need to take a step back and consider if we really need that drug.
This article is about new technology and how it may be able to help patients with osteoporosis. Cryotherapy, first used on athletes, is a treatment where the client is exposed to nitrogen gas which drastically reduces the inflammation in their joints but it is only temporary. There are many medications that can treat the symptoms of osteoporosis. Nanotechnology, however, is another new technology that is still being tested on mice today but could possibly cure the disease entirely. Over 9 million people are effected by this bone disease and with these new technologies, the treatment may someday prevent the disease. I hope that is the case!
I thought this article about Osteoporosis was very cool and informal. Many factors attribute to bone loss and once it occurs , you cant do much about it.This article focuses on the fact that it is very hard to spot, many of the early causes of Osteoporosis is a bone fracture. I learned that Osteoporosis could be passed down from previous generations and the only ways to try and prevent it would be to stay healthy and very active and do not smoke.my grandfather was a huge smoker and it really effected his bone amount. Osteoporosis is usually found when our bone growth tops out at 30 and we slowly start to decline.
As this current event states, herbal teas can have a great impact on fighting against osteoporosis. A herb called "Ayurveda" has been studied and the findings are pretty cool. Ayurveda has been found remove fluoride from water, which deteriorates bone. Along with that herb, tea is filled with a complex set of nutrients that help strengthen your teeth and bones, and even get rid of bone issues you may have. Horsetail, Nettle, and Oatstraw are all teas that can give you an extreme health benefit for your bones.
Osteoporosis is a very "popular" disease. It's diagnosed to people all over the world, from Greenland in the northern hemisphere all the way down to Argentina in the Southern Hemisphere. There are risk factors we all should concider. Not because we are young doesn't mean that you won't be diagnosed with osteoporosis, you won't be healthy and take care of your health. We all can see that families have at least one member diagnosed with osteoporosis. Risk factors include, gender, age, ethnicity (I know, it sounds weird but if you read the article, it will make more sense), among others. Of course you may be wondering how can I keep a healthy lifestyle? Well by not drinking, smoking, eating lots and lots of food with calcium and vitamin d and lots of exercise!
This article is describes osteoporosis, the symptoms of it and general risk factors. Osteoporosis is a Bone condition in which bones get less dense as you get older. Usually osteoporosis affects older women. Some symptoms of osteoporosis are joint pain, difficulty standing up and difficulty sitting straight. People with smaller body frames tend to be affected as well. Osteoporosis becomes more common in women after menopause, although men can be affected as well.
This article, full of informative info about Osteoporsis, a disease that leads the bones in our body to become frailer, which could then lead to more easily obtained fractures. The bone lacks in calcium and minerals. This is not only something the elderly should be concerned about, but anyone who is inactive, bad life style and poor diet. Pain will start in your spine, but it could either hit you gradually or all of a sudden. Some treatments for Osteoperosis would be: lifestyle changes, more vitamin D, and using medicine. If you're over 70, then you need your vitamin D daily.
This article talks about how there is a perceived link between osteoporosis and obesity. It has long been known that obese people have fat in hidden spaces such as the liver, kidneys, and other organs. A recent discovery hwever shows that they also have excess fat in their bone marrow.

Osteoporosis is a disease that makes your bones brittle because of lack of bone growth or loss of bone. Everybody’s bones have holes in them but with osteoporosis the holes become larger than the healthy bone. This disease is very common in adults over 50 and can make breaking a bone very easy. In severe cases a simple sneeze can break a bone. You cannot tell that your bones are getting less dense, so this disease can sneak up on people. All of the sudden you break a bone by sneezing and your life has changed because you know you have Osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the bones to become weak and brittle. The New York Times gives information about cures that can help osteoporosis by taking vitamin d. My great- grandmother currently has osteoporosis and has broken her femur in five places due to a fall in the bathroom.

This article help explain not only the treatment of Osteoporosis, but the causes, symptoms, and prevention as well. When I life guarded during the summer, I remember always seeing an elderly woman in the early mornings swimming in the pool before everyone else. I remembered how the woman moved very slowly and only exercised in the water for a short time. The woman told me later that she had Osteoporosis and that her physician recommended that she swim as a way of physical therapy to help strengthen her bones. This article was interesting in that it demonstrates why people with Osteoporosis do "safe exercises" to help strengthen brittle bones. This could explain why the older woman would swim during exercises rather than jog or lift weights. It also helps show what people with Osteoporosis, including the elderly woman, have to go through.
This article is about the importance of vitamin K and how it can lead to better bone health and maybe the prevention of osteoporosis. Researches have discovered a very important protein called osteocalcin and how it is very important in the retention of bone fractures. They have discovered the the obnly way toads orb this protein is through vitamin K. Scientist have known about osteocalcin for a long time, but very little about its capabilities. They believe that since osteocalcin is the point of fractures, that strengthening it will strengthen the bone overall. Vitamin K has been linked to better bone health already but through osteocalcin scientist believe it can help even more.
This article is basically an overview of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that causes your bones to lose density and thereby become weaker. The disease is most common in older women, but anyone can develop it. You can't really tell you have it until you break a bone. It's what they call a silent disease. Risk factors include being old, being small and thin, taking certain medicines, having a family history of osteoporosis, or being white or Asian. To prevent osteoporosis and keep your bones strong and healthy, it is recommended to have a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D. Also regular exercise and being a nonsmoker is good.
Foods that are high in fat or sugar are unhealthy whether or not they are in a large quantity. Scientists say that they hear more and more about the importance of eating habits. More importantly than that, i learned that obesity can lead to osteoporosis.
