WORLD OSTEOPOROSIS DAY 20TH OCTOBER 2020 - IT is observed to raise awareness about Osteoporosis. The condition commonly causes fractures of hip , wrist and spine Common symptoms are back pain, loss of height over period of time , stooped posture and bones that break early Here are certain tips to prevent Osteoporosis .1.EXERCISE REGULARLY Regular exercise can make your bones and muscles stronger. Weight-bearing exercises like aerobics, climbing stairs, running, walking, yoga and dancing are weight bearing exercises that can make your bones stronger. You can also do strength training and weight training exercises regularly. They can improve your body strength and bone strength alike. 2. CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D Calcium and Vitamin D are the two nutrients you need for strong and healthy bones. Lack of calcium in your diet can result in loss of bone mass. Milk and dairy products, soy foods, salmon and sardines and dark leafy green veggies are a good source of calcium. Vitamin D is needed by the body to enhance absorption of calcium. The sunshine vitamin is synthesised in the body in the presence of sunlight. You can get traces of it by eating fatty fish, mushroom, milk and dairy products and egg yolks. Milk and dairy products are a good source of calcium 3. AVOID AERATED DRINKS- These drinks contain sugar in excessive amounts. Drinking them is like consuming empty calories, so they anyway should be avoided. What's more, studies have found that aerated or carbonated drinks can lead to bone loss. It may probably be because of the extra phosphorus in your body that keeps it from absorbing calcium. 4. AVOID SMOKING AND ALCOHOL These two habits can harm you in more ways than you can imagine. They can increase risk of bone loss and hence you must avoid drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes under all circumstances. For extra protection, you can get a bone density test, which measures a small part of one or a few bones to see how strong they are. This test can tell about one's likelihood of getting osteoporosis. Talk to your expert to check if you need a bone density test or not.
