Osteoporosis Prevention

Prevention

Building strong bones throughout the early years is the best defense against osteoporosis. There are four steps to prevent osteoporosis:

  • A balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D
  • Weight-bearing exercise
  • Healthful lifestyle (eg, no smoking, drinking alcohol in moderation)
  • Bone density testing and medications where appropriate:
    • Fosamax
    • Actonel
    • Evista
