Factor #1: Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a condition wherein bones become more porous, less resistant to stress, and more prone to fractures. Caused by hormonal changes, calcium and vitamin D deficiency, and a decrease in physical activity, osteoporosis is a chief cause of fractures in older adults, especially among women.

What is debatable is whether brittle bones break after a fall, or break when stressed and in turn cause a fall. In either event, a decrease in bone density contributes to falls and resultant injuries.

Prevention Tips
Eat or drink sufficient calcium. Postmenopausal women need 1,500 mg of calcium daily. Calcium-rich foods include milk, yogurt, cheese, fish and shellfish, selected vegetables such as broccoli, soybeans, collards and turnip greens, tofu and almonds.

Get sufficient vitamin D in order to enhance the absorption of calcium into the bloodstream. Vitamin D is formed naturally in the body after exposure to sunlight, but some older adults may need a supplement.
Regularly do weight-bearing exercises.

Check Out Breast Feed Buffalo on Facebook!

Breastfeed Buffalo is a place where mothers and others with breastfeeding questions can post their questions and get answers from myself and other mothers who may have gone through something similar. My goal is for Breastfeed Buffalo to offer mother to mother support, and also to make sure that any information given is up to date and evidence based.
