World Osteoporosis Day: Osteoporosis is a condition that affects a person's bones. The bone loses strength and density. Osteoporosis causes weak bones and increases the risk of bone fractures. In this situation, small events can also lead to fracture. It is important to understand the symptoms of osteoporosis to prevent damage to bones. If this condition is left uncontrolled, then this situation can make it difficult to do day to day activities. As you age, the density of your bones decreases and you are at high levels of osteoporosis. It is advisable to include enough vitamin D and calcium in your diet for healthy bones. Regular exercise can also help strengthen bones. Women are especially at risk after the age of 50, especially men. Men also suffer from this condition but the chances are comparatively less. Excess body weight or small body frame also puts you at greater risk. Regular exercise and a healthy diet can help maintain a healthy body weight and control the risk of osteoporosis. Many health conditions like celiac disease, kidney disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis can increase your risk. It is advisable to eat a well-balanced diet with protein, calcium, vitamin D and other essential nutrients. Regular exercise can also help in fighting risk.
