Looking after your bones

It’s never too early or too late to take steps to protect your bones from osteoporosis fracture risk.

Osteoporosis is a condition where bones lose their strength X-ray of armand are more likely to break, usually following a minor bump or fall. One in 2 women and one in 5 men over the age of 50 experience fractures, mostly as a result of low bone strength.

The loss of bone density increases the chance of breaking a bone. Having a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D will help, as will
weight-bearing exercise.

The National Osteoporosis Society offers advice and guidance about living with osteoporosis and how to avoid fractures.
