Prevention

  • Advice to prevent (or limit) osteoporosis is to:
    • ensure the growth and development of healthy bones in youth and early adulthood
    • exercise regularly at all ages
    • Strengthen muscles which are weight-bearing
    • ensure adequate vitamin D nutrition (sunlight, diet)
    • consume enough dietary calcium to minimize how much the body borrows from bone.
