How to Beat Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease that affects the bones and makes them more fragile. It can lead to fractures, which may be painful or even disabling. Osteoporosis also increases the risk of developing other diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. This blog post will discuss 11 ways to beat osteoporosis!

You can do things to help prevent osteoporosis, but if you already have it the most important thing is taking your medicine correctly. That means not cutting or crushing them and swallowing them whole with lots of water. You might want to talk to your doctor about switching medicines too if something isn’t working for you.

There are some things you can do to help your bones stay healthy. Some of them are:

– Eat a balanced diet that includes calcium and vitamin D. You can find these in foods like dairy products, salmon, tofu and green leafy vegetables.

– Avoid smoking and drinking too much alcohol. These can damage your bones over time.

– Be physically active and exercise regularly to help your muscles support you bones better. You can go walking, biking or swimming for example.

– If you have osteoporosis in your spine it’s really important not to take a risk by doing any heavy lifting because that could cause fractures!

– Keep your bones healthy by getting enough sunlight. Vitamin D is made in the skin when it’s exposed to sunlight.

There are other things you can do like using a walking stick if you have trouble with balance, or wearing sensible shoes to protect your feet.

No matter what, don’t give up! There are lots of ways to fight osteoporosis and stay healthy.
