Report Sample – An Overview of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is often referred to as a silent disease. This is because you normally aren’t aware of it until after you break a bone. By this time your bone density is decreasing and you are more likely to suffer from additional fractures as you age.
It is recommended for women over 50 and who are post menopausal to have a bone density test. This test will then determine if your risk of developing osteoporosis is high. Another test is done usually two to three years later and compared to the first. A doctor can then see if your risk has increased or not.
If you go for regular checkups your doctor will advise you to increase your calcium intake as you age. As well as calcium you need to get adequate doses of vitamin D. For those who live in cold climates a vitamin D supplement is advised. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to ensure a good intake of all essential vitamins and minerals.
As you age you tend to start exercising less and this is not good for your bone mass. You should try to do some form of exercise that helps to strengthen your muscles. Walking and swimming are excellent choices and easy on your joints.
