Are You Living a Bone Healthy Lifestyle?
Your bones are changing all the time – making new bone and breaking down old bone constantly. Early in our lives our bodies make bone tissue faster than they break down old bone and our total bone mass increases, peaking around age 30. Our bodies continue remodeling our bone structure after 30, but we lose slightly more mass than we gain.
As we age we are at an increased risk of developing osteoporosis. A lot of factors influence bone health as we age. While some are out of our control, we can take steps to life a bone healthy lifestyle and protect our bone mass over time. How can you protect your bones?
- Add Calcium to Your Diet – calcium helps protect bone mass and reduces your risk of fractures as your bones age.
- Stay Physically Active – weight bearing exercise encourages strong bones. Adding a daily walk to your lifestyle is easy and reduces your risk of osteoporosis.
- Stop Smoking – Tobacco use contributes to weak bones. You can protect your bones, and improve your overall health, by avoiding tobacco.
- Consider Hormone Replacement Therapy – bone loss increases dramatically at menopause due to dropping estrogen levels and hormonal imbalance. Hormone replacement therapy protects bones by correcting hormone imbalance.
