Prevention of Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the thinning of the bones which has become 'the silent recrudescence'. Our bones reach the maximum density in our mid-20s, and they start getting thinner from mid-30s. Menopause speeds up the bone loss putting women at a very higher risk during the aging process but men are at almost equal risk. Osteoporosis makes the bones more fragile and prone to fracture even by a minor fall in old age.

Osteoporosis has become a common disease of the elderly which weakens the bone and causes a high risk of a fracture of bone. It can cause a fracture of backbone, forearm bone, and the hip for which you might need Nurse required for home in Amritsar, Amritsar, Kochi.

Nutrition: Vitamin D is one of the important vitamin of the bones but very difficult to get in right quantity from the food we eat. You should always take Doctor advice online in India or Medical second opinion services Chennai and should start the vitamin D supplement if possible. Some common foods that we can consume which are high in calcium:
