8 Ways To Prevent Bone Loss (That Don’t Include Drinking More Milk!)

Bone loss isn’t just an issue facing elderly people or those who neglect to drink their milk. It’s a common issue for those who suffer from illnesses such as multiple sclerosis to diabetes to celiac disease. A recent study on breast cancer and fractures indicated that breast cancer patients who take aromatase inhibitors are more likely to suffer from bone loss. Postmenopausal women also face an increased risk of bone loss and fracture issues. Bone density is very important, whether you’re dealing with these health concerns or not. Here are a few tips on how to keep your bones healthy and strong.

8. Exercise

Bones, like muscles, gain strength through regular exercise because activity promotes cell production. Start out with two of the most accessible types of exercise and go for a brisk walk or run. You can also do muscle-strengthening activities to help build stronger bones.

7. Maintain a Healthy Weight

Being underweight or overweight can both negatively affect your bones. Too much body weight can put unnecessary strain on bones, while being underweight might mean your body is experiencing nutrient deficiencies, which can lead to low bone density. Determine your healthy weight level with your doctor, and do your best to maintain it.
