Osteoporosis has no symptoms until a bone breaks

Osteoporosis has no symptoms until a bone breaks, but workshop focuses on prevention and treatment May 2019

  • “Half of all women and every fifth man over the age of 50 are at risk for osteoporosis”
  • “After the first one (fracture), you have five times the risk of another. With two or more, there’s 12 times the risk. It’s like a domino effect...”
  • “While calcium supplements are widely available, they’re increasingly linked to side effects such as kidney stones, gas, constipation, high blood pressure and heart disease”
  • “The key is to balance your calcium intake with your phosphorus intake, which is two to four times too high for most Americans”
    • “Meat and dairy, which are high in phosphorus, should be limited. Instead. recipes should emphasize green leafy vegetables, beans and stews, fruits, seeds and nuts”

No, there are symptoms and there are ways to prevent fractures as well as falling

Overview Osteoporosis and vitamin D contains the following summary

  • FACT: Bones need Calcium (this has been known for a very long time)
  • FACT: Vitamin D improves Calcium bioavailability (3X ?)
  • FACT: Should not take > 750 mg of Calcium if taking lots of vitamin D (Calcium becomes too bio-available)
  • FACT: Adding vitamin D via Sun, UV, or supplements increased vitamin D in the blood
  • FACT: Vitamin D supplements are very low cost
  • FACT: Many trials, studies. reviews, and meta-analysis agree: adding vitamin D reduces osteoporosis
  • FACT: Toxic level of vitamin D is about 4X higher than the amount needed to reduce osteoporosis
  • FACT: Co-factors help build bones.
  • FACT: Vitamin D Receptor can restrict Vitamin D from getting to many tissues, such as bones
  • It appears that to TREAT Osteoporosis:
  •        Calcium OR vitamin D is ok
  •        Calcium + vitamin D is good
  •        Calcium + vitamin D + other co-factors is great
  •        Low-cost Vitamin D Receptor activators sometimes may be helpful
  • CONCLUSION: To PREVENT many diseases, including Osteoporosis, as well as TREAT Osteoporosis
  • Category Osteoporosis has 217 items
  • Category Bone Health has 308 items
