There is a way to protect your bones: Learn more about osteoporosis
What exactly is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a chronic bone metabolic disease. Simply put, it means that the bone density decreases, gradually becomes fragile, and is prone to fractures.
Current status of osteoporosis in Hong Kong!
According to the statistics of the SAR government, there are approximately 550,000 people in Hong Kong suffering from osteoporosis, and almost one-tenth of the population has this disease, which is considered a very serious condition. Of course, the aging population is also the reason for the relatively high proportion of this disease, but is there any way to prevent or stop it? I'll wait until I explain it in detail below.
Do the Prophet himself belong to the high-risk group?
According to the Department of Health, the elderly , women, those who are underweight or have a small skeleton are at higher risk of developing osteoporosis. In addition, people who have a partial eclipse habit , smoke , drink too much , drink too much caffeinated beverages , eat too much sodium and lack of exercise will be easily recruited. I believe that most Hong Kong people will meet several high-risk conditions, such as partial eclipse, drinking too much caffeine or lack of exercise, etc., which are all caused by the busy life in Hong Kong.
How to find out if you have osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis itself has no symptoms at all, but if a slight bump or fall causes a fracture, you should pay attention. In addition, if the spine slowly bends downward, as if bending over, but has not experienced any collisions to cause this downward curvature, it is likely to be due to osteoporosis.
Can the first point prevent osteoporosis?
I believe that after reading the content of the high-risk group, you probably know how to prevent osteoporosis. I will roughly explain how to prevent it below.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D absorption
Calcium and vitamin D both help to increase bone density, but it is best not to neglect the absorption of other nutrients to avoid other physical problems. If you want to add more calcium or vitamin D , it is recommended to eat the following foods!
Milk: low-fat or skim milk products
Seafood: sardines , dried shrimp, dried whitebait, etc.
Soy products: soy products such as tofu , soy milk and yuba, of course, it is best to avoid sugary or fried
Vegetables: Vegetables such as cabbage , cabbage , broccoli and kale are rich in calcium
Fruits: mainly oranges and figs.
But it must be noted that if you are really interested in the above foods, or have no choice because of your busy work, health products are of course another source of calcium supplementation, but of course it is best to check the qualifications before using them. People first!
maintain exercise habits
Do more weight-bearing exercise. Studies have shown that at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day is good for your health. It also helps improve your metabolism, maintain an appropriate weight, and make it easier for you to absorb nutrients.
avoid bad habits
It is best to avoid smoking , excessive drinking and frequent drinking of caffeinated beverages, and at the same time have adequate rest, which can take more rest than the body and reduce the burden on the body.
If you suspect you have osteoporosis, can you order?
Don't be negligent, and immediately consult a doctor for a detailed examination. Don't delay until you have a physical problem and prevent it first, or it may be too late.
Generally speaking, given the busy life of Hong Kong people, it is difficult to avoid the risks mentioned above, but we all hope that everyone will try their best to maintain their health and stay away from bad habits.
