Is Osteoporosis is inevitable - treasure your bones

Is Osteoporosis is inevitable

While getting older is the strongest risk factor for osteoporosis, many elderly individuals never develop the disorder. Dietary or supplemental calcium, vitamin D, exercise and good genes probably play a role. Avoiding risk factors is also important. Besides age, risk factors include:
  • Being a postmenopausal woman or a man over age 70
  • Being bedridden
  • Having low body weight
  • Smoking
  • Having low testosterone (in men)
  • Taking certain medications (such as corticosteroids, anti-estrogen drugs, or some anti-seizure medicines)
  • Having certain medical conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, or an eating disorder
  • Being Caucasian (as compared with African American)
  • Missing menstrual periods
  • Having alcoholism
  • Having a family history of osteoporosis
  • Having a low intake of calcium
