Osteoporosis and Almonds

Osteoporosis is one of the most common illnesses in the US, with over 10 million currently suffering from symptoms of osteoporosis, a condition in which bones lose their density and are highly susceptible to fractures. Statistically, about 50% of women and 25% of men in the US will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture. The causes of osteoporosis are yet to be determined, but there are several well-documented risk factors:
 

  • Gender
    •  
    • Since women generally have lower bone density than men, they have a higher risk of contracting osteoporosis.
    • Ethnicity
      • Asian and Caucasian females
    • Fine bone structure
    • Family history
    • Sedentary lifestyle
    • Poor nutrition
    • Low estrogen levels
    • Amenorrhea
      • Loss of menstrual period in younger women, commonly due to an eating disorder
    • Vitamin D deficiency
      • Vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption in your body
    • Smoking cigarettes


There is a variety of methods of diagnosing osteoporosis.
 

  • X-ray
    •  
    • The low bone density that is characteristic of osteoporosis will show up on x-rays; however, by the time it does, approximately 30% of the bone is lost.
  •  
  • DXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry scan)
    •  
    • This procedure measures the density of spinal and hip bones with great accuracy
  •  
  • Bone mineral density test


Although there are several forms of medication for treating osteoporosis, among them estrogen, raloxifene (Evista), and biphosphonates, the most effective treatment is of a preventative nature. A lifestyle change may be necessary in order to prevent osteoporosis – cutting back on or quitting cigarettes, increasing your daily intake of vitamin D and calcium, and improving your nutritional habits. In addition to the tremendous amount of pain associated with osteoporosis, there is also a significant economic detriment thanks to days of work lost and the amount of osteoporosis-related disability. Small lifestyle changes can dramatically improve your quality of life in your later years.
