Osteoporosis can be prevented


what kind of foods might we eat that can
also help keep our bones healthy and strong I will always recommend my
patients a balanced diet that includes vegetables includes also meats
especially white meats for instance fish tuna chicken Salman they’re very healthy
but also there is a supplementation of vitamin that we all should be taking and
that’s vitamin D vitamin D nowadays is recommended basically from breastfed
babies until you get to be a hundred and plus years old so a supplementation
of vitamin D on a daily basis at least 800 international units of vitamin D
to patients 65 years and older is very important because this not only
decreases the risk for falls but also decreases the risk for osteoporosis as
well okay good to know we’ve talked about exercise and diet but I understand that there are some tips that you actually do have or can offer to help us
manage osteoporosis and actually we have a graphic I guess that illustrates those you’re mentioning here doctor it starts
off with eating protein calcium vitamin D nutritional supplements to stay active
like we just talked about maintain that healthy weight lean on your doctor
obviously your support system for this for your patients walking you don’t have to run a marathon walking is very important yes okay and don’t smoke smoking is a health problem in the u.s. I have patients that that smoke I have patients
who smoke a pack a day and yes smoking is one of the risk factor for osteoporosis
