3 Ways to Save Your Bones

Osteoporosis isn't an old-lady disease any more. It's getting more common among younger women and some men as well due to lack of physical activities, poor diet and lifestyle.

One indication that your bones may be weak is a stress fracture. This could be early sign for younger women. Osteopenia is the early stage of osteoporosis but can be slowed down and reversible.

If you're suspicious of having bone problems, here are 3 ways to help you save your bones.

#1 Check your bone density.
If you're concerned, ask your doctor for a DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan that measures your bone density.

#2 Diet and Supplements.
Keep a healthy diet rich in calcium such as milk and yogurt. Take calcium supplements if you want insurance. Reduce sugary soft drinks.

#3 Start exercising and physical activities.
Regular exercises, particularly weight-bearing strength training, keep your bones healthy.

Ultimately, maintaining a healthy bodyweight by regular exercises and proper nutrition will keep you bone-stong.
