As a woman, you may experience a disease that can cause your bones to become weak and fragile as you age. Osteoporosis affects older women primarily, but younger women should also be aware of the disease and take steps to prevent bone loss. If you experience broken bones as an older woman, you could have serious health issues, even disability, as a result.

Osteoporosis can affect men as well, but 80% of those individuals in the US with the disease are women. In the US, osteoporosis affects about one-fourth of women over the age of 65.

You may be more likely to get osteoporosis because of certain facts, including:

  • As a woman, you tend to have smaller, thinner, and less dense bones than a man.
  • As a woman, you typically live longer than men and bone loss happens naturally as you age.
  • After menopause, you lose more bone mass as you tend to have lower levels of the hormone estrogen. Women with higher estrogen levels, before menopause, are better able to protect their bone density.

A healthcare specialist can help you learn more about how to prevent the disease. When you have osteoporosis, you may not experience any symptoms until you break a bone. Younger women should also be aware that they can get osteoporosis as well.

Learning how to prevent osteoporosis is critical for women of all ages. You can slow your natural bone loss and prevent your bones from becoming weak and brittle by:

  • Getting enough calcium and vitamin D every day.
  • Exercising, including weight-bearing activities such as running or dancing.
  • Not smoking, which increases your risk for broken bones.
  • Drinking in moderation only.
  • Talking to your Lifeline Medical Associates healthcare provider about further steps you can take to maintain healthy bones.
