5 Steps To Prevent Osteoporosis

If you want to avoid osteoporosis, then keep these 5 things in mind at 20-30 years of age.

Back pain and pain anywhere in the bones can be symptoms of osteoporosis. In such a situation, osteoporosis should be avoided at a young age with the help of these tips.

Osteoporosis is a disease related to bones in which the bone starts to become hollow from the inside. Due to this, the bones become weak rapidly and can be a victim of pain and fracture. But most people think that bone diseases occur only in the elderly age. However, this is not true. 

Nowadays our deteriorating lifestyle can damage the health of our bones and make them hollow from the inside. Due to this, people between 20-30 years of age can also develop osteoporosis. In such a situation, it is important that special attention should be given to bone health at this age. 

How is the health of our bones at 20-30 years of age?

At the age of 20 to 30, our bones are strong from the inside with good bone mass density. Bone health may get affected due to the following- 

  • Unhealthy lifestyle 
  • Lack of calcium in the diet 
  • Vitamin deficiency 
  • Eating outside junk food 
  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress 
  • Lack of physical activity 
  • Rapid hormonal changes in women 

This can cause bones to deteriorate and become weak. In such a situation, it is necessary that we should pay special attention to these things to strengthen the bones and avoid osteoporosis.

5 Steps To Prevent Osteoporosis 

  1. Consume foods rich in calcium

Bone density decreases rapidly in the disease of osteoporosis. The bones become hollow from the inside. In such a situation, consuming calcium-rich things can reduce the risk of osteoporosis. In addition, calcium can help strengthen bones from within, which can help reduce the symptoms of osteoporosis. 

  • At the age of 20-30, curd and milk should be consumed daily.
  • People of this age do not pay much attention to eating vegetables and greens. In such a situation, eat green vegetables, especially dark green greens.
  • Consume tofu as it contains a good amount of calcium.
  • Eat beans.
  • Eat citrus fruits.
  • Avoid eating outside foods that damage the body's calcium.
  1. Vitamin D

Getting enough vitamin D helps improve the absorption and structure of calcium in your bones. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, vitamin D deficiency causes knee pain and joint pain at an early age. Also, the problem of gout is also associated with vitamin D. That's why you should avoid vitamin D deficiency. However, there is no suitable food item for this. The first sunlight in the morning provides some degree of vitamin D, but when you have symptoms of osteoporosis, your doctor may prescribe vitamin D supplements.

  1. Protein and Potassium Intake

Since childhood, you must have known that it is very important to have a good amount of protein in the body for healthy bones. In fact, bones are made up of protein strands linked to minerals and calcium, so protein is essential for strong bones. For this, eat foods rich in protein. Also, very few people know that potassium improves calcium metabolism. Adults need 4,700 milligrams per day of potassium, but people often lack it. In such a situation, you can consume bananas, tomatoes, raisins, and other foods rich in potassium.

  1. Do Physical Activity

Lack of physical activity also affects your bone health. In this case, activities like walking, dancing, aerobics, and doing small household chores keep your bones activated, stimulate remodeling and keep bones strong. So keep in mind that you must be physically active.

  1. Avoid Smoking

Tobacco use causes bone loss in both men and women. Also, if someone is showing symptoms of osteoporosis, it can increase it. This can cause hand pain, joint pain, knee pain, etc.
