In an all-new edition, Osteoporosis: Your Bones Matter will update your knowledge of osteoporosis so that you will have healthy bones for many years to come. Authors Dr Leong Keng Hong and Louisa Zhang discuss this common disease that affects mainly the elderly and women in their menopause. Also known as “brittle bone disease”, osteoporosis causes the bones to become brittle, and often goes unnoticed until a fracture occurs — which is too late. So be aware of osteoporosis and take steps to prevent it at an earlier age.
With advances in the medical field, Osteoporosis explains new ways to predict for fractures such as FRAX. Sections on medication and vitamin D absorption have been updated, and there are new recipes complete with nutritional information.
This book includes advice and information on:
- Signs and Symptoms of Osteoporosis
- Risk Factors
- Prevention of Osteoporosis
- Specific Cases
- Osteoporosis and Menopause
- Fall Prevention
- Bone-Healthy Recipes
The authors’ in-depth medical knowledge and years of clinical experience make this book highly useful for healthcare providers, caregivers, and anyone interested in knowing more about osteoporosis.
