Osteoporosis :: Chinese Medicine Herbal Supplements and Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis makes your bones weak and more likely to break. Anyone can develop osteoporosis, but it is common in older women. Almost half of all women and a quarter of men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a silent disease. You might not know you have it until you break a bone. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health. To keep bones strong, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise and do not smoke.
