How to Prevent Osteoporosis at a Young Age

Osteoporosis or porous bone is known as a disease of the elderly (elderly). Even though this assumption is not entirely correct. Young people can develop osteoporosis for certain reasons. When many people just pay attention to bone health when they are old, it could be too late.

Osteoporosis, especially, is very likely to occur in someone without any visible symptoms. In young people, hormonal disorders, irregular menstruation, and consumption of drugs containing steroids for the treatment of certain diseases can cause osteoporosis. The risk of osteoporosis at a young age can also be higher if you have previously had certain medical problems, such as:

  • Lupus
  • Celiac disease
  • Kidney illness
  • liver disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis

If you are able to maintain strong bones while young, a person is very likely to be free from osteoporosis when they become elderly.

How to prevent osteoporosis from a young age

  • Eat foods rich in calcium
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin C
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin D because they can help speed up the absorption of calcium by the body
  • Regular exercise, especially choosing sports that can put weight on the bones such as lifting weights
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol
  • Consume CBD Oil

The sooner it is known, the better

Meanwhile, just like any other disease, the sooner the bone condition is identified, the better. That way, if the bones have shown a tendency to porous, a person can immediately determine a solution step to repair or prevent worse damage. If you have osteoporosis, someone will clearly lose out. There are several symptoms or disadvantages that a person with osteoporosis will experience.

Sacrifice bones

In adults, until the early age of 40 years, adequate calcium intake can help maintain bone density, especially in the hips.

Meanwhile, among premenopausal, postmenopausal and elderly women, adequate calcium intake can reduce the rate of bone loss even though it does not actually prevent bone loss. It is normal to lose some of your daily calcium through secretions (urine and feces), sweat and lungs while breathing. Therefore, everyone is advised to consume enough calcium every day to restore the lost calcium.

If calcium needs cannot be met, the body will automatically take calcium from the bones, which function as the main storehouse for calcium. This condition then makes bones weak and prone to fractures in order to maintain other bodily functions that are more vital for survival. Maintaining calcium levels is very important so that the heart and arteries, nerves and muscles can function normally.
