Join us for an insightful episode where we delve into osteoporosis and strategies for building strong bones with Professor Belinda Beck, an expert in bone health.

Summary:
In this episode, Shelley Craft engages in a conversation with Professor Belinda Beck about osteoporosis, its causes, risk factors, diagnosis, and preventive measures. The discussion includes insights into nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle choices.

Highlights:
Osteoporosis Insight: Osteoporosis weakens bones, affecting both genders, especially postmenopausal women.
Risk Factors: Age, genetics, gender, hormones, low calcium/vitamin D intake, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, excessive alcohol, and certain conditions increase osteoporosis risk.
Calcium Significance: Calcium is essential for bone health; its deficiency leads to bone loss.
Vitamin D’s Role: Vitamin D aids calcium absorption, obtained through sunlight, fish, and fortified dairy.
Exercise Benefits: Weight-bearing activities and resistance training can improve bone strength and density. 
Bone Density Testing: Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scans evaluate bone density using T-scores.
Early Awareness: Discussing osteoporosis with a doctor allows timely intervention and prevention.
Nutrition and Lifestyle: A balanced diet rich in calcium, vitamin D, plus quitting smoking and moderating alcohol, supports bone health.
Osteopenia Alert: Low bone mass or osteopenia signals fracture risk, warranting preventive action.
