3 Ways to keep Osteoporosis at Bay in the Elderly

3 Ways to keep Osteoporosis at Bay in the Elderly

A condition in which bones become weak and brittle is called Osteoporosis. As we age, it becomes important to keep our bones healthy. This is particularly true for the elderly who are at high risk of osteoporosis. More than one-third of Indians above the age of 50 are likely to experience a broken bone as a result of osteoporosis in their middle age or old age. Hence, if you or any of your senior aged ones are worried about osteoporosis, keep these things in mind for maintaining healthy bones:

Eat a Rich Diet

You can keep your body healthy by nourishing your bones with essential nutrients. Vitamin D, Calcium and Protein are the vital nutrients that form healthy bones. Besides these nutrients, you can take dairy products to ensure healthy bones. Eating cabbage, soybeans, broccoli, nuts, tofu, eggs and oily fish also makes the bones strong.

Exercise Everyday

Exercise is known to be associated with strong muscles, but we overlook its significance in keeping our bones strong. As the muscles gain strength and mass with exercise, our bones remain sturdy and strong only when we do exercise on a regular basis. So, if you are looking forward to maintaining your bone mass, you can involve yourself in a habitual physical activity like yoga, walking and gardening. These kinds of activities do not appear like “exercise” but they give the bones a good work out.

Consult Your Doctor

Sustaining healthy bones and keeping osteoporosis at an arm’s length form a hale and hearty lifestyle, so it is good to get in touch with your doctor if you have any questions about the same. He is the best person to tell you if you are at the risk of osteoporosis and to recommend you how to escape this risk.

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.
