May is Osteoporosis Awareness Month!
May is Osteoporosis Awareness Month and we'd like to help you with this topic, so you'll know as much as you can when dealing with newly diagnosed bone loss, or if you just want to take preventative measures, early, to avert this from happening to you or a loved one.
This month our writers Dr. Christina Lasich, PJ Hamel and myself will be covering topics that should help you to understand this medical problem better.
Awareness means to have knowledge of a topic, so here's what we'll be covering this month to help you on the road to osteoporosis awareness.
PJ Hamel will be writing about:
- Eat Healthy! 10 Foods to Help Prevent Osteoporosis
- Brittle Bone Syndrome - What is it? Do I have it?
Dr. Christina Lasich will be writing about:
- Chronic Opioid Use Increases the Risk for Osteoporosis
I'll be covering:
- Little Know Forms of Osteoporosis and Their Treatments
- Medications That Increase Fracture Risk
- Angular Bone Loss - What is it?
We hope this information will help you to expand your knowledge of osteopenia and osteoporosis, so you will be able to say that YOU ARE osteoporosis aware!
You may also want to write a SharePost at OsteoporosisConnection.com, so you can share with the other readers, how you're dealing with osteoporosis, what treatment options you've chosen and why, and connect with others who are experiencing the same confusion and dismay over a recent diagnosis of bone loss. SharePosts are much like a journal, and writing out your inner most feelings can be very therapeutic, and also help so many others that are on the same path.
You can also post questions on our "Ask a Question" forum if you need help with any of your treatment decisions or questions on supplements, diet and exercise.
Let's make this a month where we all become AWARE of bone loss; because knowledge is power and we need power to navigate through our challenging lives.
