Smart Ways to Prevent Osteoporosis

Erika Schwartz, M.D By Wednesday, 17 October 2018 04:31 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

Q: What is the best way to prevent osteoporosis? I watched my mother suffer horribly from it and I’d like to do everything I can to keep my bones healthy.

A: Exercise. Work out with weights at least three times a week, and heavier weights are better. Cardio exercises are important, too, but weights and flexibility are crucial.

Also, consider taking hormones. Bioidentical estradiol/testosterone is important for maintaining high bone density.

Do you know any 20-something with osteoporosis? They all have lots of estrogen and progesterone.

In addition, supplements like vitamin D, low doses of calcium citrate malate, magnesium, and vitamin K2 will help your bones stay strong. There is no need to repeat your mom’s history.
