Synopsis

Synopsis

Hip fractures can be killers—one in five women will die within a year of breaking a hip, and one in three men. In fact, osteoporosis, the so-called brittle bone disease, is the most common health problem facing women today. The good news is that your risk for breaking bones can be decreased or even prevented at just about any age or stage. This book compiles the latest information about bolstering bones, from prevention to treatment, into a single, easy-to-understand resource. The author, a leading expert on osteoporosis, covers everything you should know about your bones. Using evidence-based research, first-hand stories and her own experience, she provides practical recommendations to optimize your bone health. Get the facts on: bone health basics; risk factors for bone loss and fractures; bone density "DXA" scans; exercise and nutrition; vitamin D; prescription medicines; controversial "hot topics"; complementary and alternative approaches; and common health problems and medicines affecting your bones. Designed to be practical and user-friendly, each chapter ends with a bottom-line summary, "The Bare Bones," allowing you to easily reference issues of interest. This book is a clear, accurate, and up-to-date guide to improving bone health and contributing to a healthier life.
