Osteoporosis Day: Fractures happen even after bending or coughing, awareness can be found
Awareness has spread among people about osteoporosis, a serious bone disease, but still its cases are increasing. This problem is seen more in women but men are also not untouched by it. It makes bones weak and fragile. Looking for home remedies to protect weak bones, then some ask the question of how to treat osteoporosis. Bones can break with a slight injury. Sometimes bending over, coughing or sneezing can also cause fractures. In such a situation, it is very important that when its symptoms are detected, its treatment should be started on time.
Dr. Siddharth Sharma, Senior Orthopedic and Specialist of SMS Hospital, Jaipur said that this disease occurs due to change in our lifestyle. In this, there is a decrease in bone density or BMD, due to which the bones become weak. Osteoporosis turns bones into abnormally porous bones, which leads to frequent fractures. It is difficult to identify it in the early symptoms. When fractures start occurring even in small activities, then this disease was known. He told that 30 to 40 percent patients are suffering from such disease every day.
Dr. Sharma told that due to the lack of calcium and vitamins necessary for the nutrition of bones, osteoporosis can also occur. If there is a deficiency of these elements in the body, then this disease easily takes hold. Dr. Siddhartha told that after the age of 50, 50 mg of calcium should be taken. Apart from this, osteoporosis is a genetic disease. If someone in the family has had this disease, then it can happen to others also. Lack of physical activity Smoking, drinking alcohol, taking vitamin D or other drugs can also lead to osteoporosis.
Relief can be given by these preventive measures –
Dr. Siddharth told that exercise should be done as much as possible in this disease. Walking, doing light exercise, yoga, etc. strengthens the muscles of the body, as well as maintains the balance of calcium in the body. If you have weak bones then exercise like jogging, treadmill or tennis is not safe for you. Apart from this, measures like calcium-rich diet in food, sitting in raw sunlight (up to 8 in the morning) for vitamin D can also give relief from this disease.
