I think if you are at high risk of osteoporosis, and even if you are not, you have to look at your health. Keep everything very simple. But you need to eat well, considering things like calcium, vitamin D and so on, and also you need to stay active and just keep the bones and the body moving. Life’s too good to be missing out on it. Healthy bones are the foundation to a healthy body.
Living with osteoporosis doesn’t have to be a life sentence. There are medications and lifestyle changes available to help you manage your osteoporosis. These can allow you to enjoy an active lifestyle.
If you feel like you are alone with your osteoporosis, rest assured there are many people going through the same ups and downs you are. You can also contact your local osteoporosis society for support. Read about the experiences of people with osteoporosis from all over the world.
