Osteoporosis - Everything You Need To Know

We all know how important bone health is for people of all ages, but did you know that up to 300,000 people in Ireland have osteoporosis?

What Is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the bones. It causes bones to become weak and fragile, so they break easily. Even a small bump or a minor fall can result in a fracture, consistent pain or a long term disability. If left undiagnosed or untreated for a long time, it can be very detrimental for the individual.

Can You Prevent Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis can have a devastating impact on peoples lives but can be prevented. Below are some lifestyle changes we can all make to help prevent osteoporosis;

  • Exercise is very important to help strengthen your bones and muscles. Resistance training can help with this, whether with body weight or dumbbells. However, it is important not to over exercise as this can put you at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis.
  • Family history of osteoporosis is also an important factor to take into account. Find out from family members or speak to your GP.
  • Healthy lifestyle habits can help assist with keeping your bones strong and healthy. Eat a healthy diet, avoid smoking and reduce alcohol intake.
  • Nutrition and supplements high in calcium and vitamin D will help reduce your risk of getting osteoporosis. Getting enough vitamin D from the sunshine is ideal, but if this is not possible, a supplement such as the Osteocare Fizz Tabs will do perfectly.
