What do all these pictures have in common? Besides the obvious that I am in them. 😁😁
Bone health! Each one of these will help with your bone health, actually any weight bearing exercises and a healthy balance diet will help lower the risk of osteoporosis!! Your bone health is important to know especially if you are entering perimenopause, menopause or are post menopausal. As we age our bodies don’t make new bone at the rate it use to, which means that they become weaker, brittle and break easier. One way to find out your bone health is by getting a bone density scan, but the recommended age for those aren’t until the age of 65.
This bugs me! Menopause does increase your risk of osteoporosis, which usually happens between the age of 40 and 50, and most studies in regard to bone health and women are done the menopause or post menopausal phase. So here is my issue, why make the recommendation for the bone scan to be at the age of 65. We know that the changes within our hormones affects our bone health, so why not recommend an younger age for the scan?
In fact in here is a direct quote from a study done in 2011, which can be found at
“Bone loss begins to accelerate 1–2 years before menopause, concurrent with the prolonged amenorrhea that characterizes the late menopausal transition. Importantly, these rates of bone loss are also influenced by body size, with greater bone loss in non-obese women and those with lower body mass, independent of differences in race/ethnicity.”
That means you are in the perimenopause phase! Look ladies I am just telling you this so you can take preventative actions to help with bone loss.
Maintain A Healthy Body Weight
Eat A Healthy Balanced Diet
Get A Body Density Scan, especially if you are starting to go thru perimenopause, menopause or are post menopausal.
1 in 2 women will have osteoporosis. Do all you can to help ensure you are not one of them.
