Annotation ""No matter your age or bone health, you can take steps to prevent future breaks. The best time to start is now." Your skeleton is a busy system of living tissue. Every day, bone is being broken down and replaced. But with osteoporosis, this process causes your bones to become weak and fragile. The disease often goes undetected until you have a fall or a painful fracture. However, having osteoporosis doesn't have to mean sitting on the sidelines. A healthy diet, the right kind of exercise and modern medications can help you manage osteoporosis effectively. In this book, you'll find clear, practical information on: Factors that affect your risk of osteoporosis Bone density tests to detect weak bones before a break Treatments to help stop bone loss and encourage new bone growth The best food and nutrients for strong bones Ways to reduce your risk of fractures and falls Exercises for building bone-and some to avoid with low bone mass And more! From doctors at the top-ranked U.S. hospital, Mayo Clinic on Osteoporosis offers the latest guidance in treatment and prevention. Learn how to take control of your bone health, lower your risk of fractures and continue the activities you enjoy." -- Provided by publisher. -- Commercial audiobook.
