Menopausal Bone Health

Osteoporosis, a disorder in which bones grow thin (less thick) and may fracture easily, can raise your risk of getting menopause (the natural termination of periods that often happens between the ages of 45 and 55). Increased bone loss is caused by the reduction in oestrogen levels that happens around menopause. In the first five years following menopause, women are thought to lose up to 10% of their bone mass on average. Eat a diet high in calcium and engage in regular weight-bearing exercise to lower your risk of developing osteoporosis. To reap the greatest benefits, it is ideal to adopt certain lifestyle behaviors when you are younger. Although prevention is ideal, there are medicinal options for managing osteoporosis.
