Osteoporosis - How A Healthy Diet Can Reduce Its Risk?

MBBS, D.P.H & H, DFW & CH

Osteoporosis - How A Healthy Diet Can Reduce Its Risk?

The bones are a porous matrix which is filled with minerals like calcium and phosphorus which make them strong. Over a period of time, the mineral content is lost and therefore the matrix gets brittle. Bones are more likely to fracture in these people.

Causes/Risk factors:

  1. The bones get fragile and brittle with age in most people, and people over 60 years of age are likely to be affected
  2. Asian women about the age of 45 are prone to osteoporosis
  3. Reduced vitamin D intake (either by sun exposure or through diet) also makes bone porous and prone to fracture
  4. Sedentary lifestyle with minimal or no exercise
  5. Lower levels of estrogen, especially post menopause
  6. Cigarette smoking
  7. Reduced testosterone levels
  8. With fracture, there is severe pain, loss of mobility, and need for prolonged nursing.

Foods which can help control/prevent osteoporosis:

  1. Yoghurt: Derived from milk, it is rich in animal protein and also contains good amounts of vitamin D and B2, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. It helps in maintaining estrogen levels during menopause, thereby preventing osteoporosis. They also provide a good supply of gut bacteria, which improves immunity.
  2. Milk: Similar to yoghurt, this is also rich in various minerals that are essential for bone health. The vitamin D in it also improves calcium absorption, thereby prolonging the occurrence of osteoporosis.
  3. Fish and meat: Lean meat and fish are good sources of oils and protein and form an essential part of diet for preventing osteoporosis. Sardines and salmon are ideal as the tiny fish are rich sources of calcium.
  4. Eggs: This contains good amounts of natural protein, minerals, and vitamins essential for bone health. It also helps in estrogen formation, which has a bone-protective effect.
  5. Cabbage: Any form of cabbage is good for preventing osteoporosis. It promotes bone metabolism and has calcium which help in strong bone formation.
  6. Bananas: Another effective food in preventing osteoporosis, it helps improve absorption of calcium and other essential nutrients to ensure bones are formed and maintain health. It also has natural oils, potassium, and vitamins A and C in good quantity.
  7. Almonds: It forms an integral part of preventing osteoporosis by increasing bone density and promoting bone health. It also has good oil content, which is also essential for bone health.
  8. Legumes: Beans and other legumes are rich source of proteins and minerals and therefore prevent onset of osteoporosis.
  9. Bengal gram (chole): Another great source of various minerals and vitamins, it is very low in calories and sugar and is great to lose weight. It also improves bone health by increasing density.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering from knee pain for last two years dunno wats the reason and I am 27 years old.
Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

I'm 22 years old male. From my childhood I can feel that my fingers are too flexible and weak than others. My thumb finger can bend backward easily more than 90 deg. All my finger joint are loose and bend easily backwards. My palm skin is so delicate and loose, vulnerable to get hurt easily. I can feel that my thumb finger bone joint is loose when compared to right so it bends easily. I haven't seen these with any other friends. Others skin become hard when the do physical work. But whatever I do, it remains soft and delicate. Often I feel pain in my finger joints due to this. I struggle to do hard works with my hands. It gets so weak and chance of breaking my fingers is high. Still now the condition is worst. Recently, I gone through the Internet about my problem. It was stated that its a genetic problem called joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS. Which is rare and has no specific treatment. It also called Ehlers Danlos syndrome (EDS) which is lack of collagen. Do I have that disorder and how can I get remedy. Please I need a description of my condition and what I need to do to gain physical strength to do day to day work. Its good if I get reply from physiotherapists.

- Current treatment options for EDS include: / Physical therapy (used to rehabilitate those with joint and muscle instability) / Surgery to repair damaged joints / Drugs to minimize pain - Additional treatment options may be available depending on the amount of pain you are experiencing or any additional symptoms. Take these steps to prevent injuries and to protect your joints: / Avoid contact sports. / Avoid lifting weights. / Put adequate padding on your child before they ride a bike or when they are learning to walk. / Use sunscreen to protect the skin. / Avoid harsh soaps that may over-dry the skin or cause allergic reactions. / Use assistive devices to minimize pressure on your joints.

I have joint pain in my legs. Many treatments done but I get a temporary solution not a permanent one. Ant therapies done. No solution. How can I get rid of pain asap.

Get an xray or mri done to know the exact cause - meanwhile - gentle massage over the affected part with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oil for 20 minutes followed by hot fomentation. It will relax the muscles and the veins of your affected part improving the blood supply to the organ and giving strength to it. Please avoid over-use of the part affected i. E. Lifting weight - pushing or pulling heavy objects. Give proper rest to the part - let it heal with the time. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.

Dear lybrate user, many factors can be associated for back pin from disc, joints, muscles etc. If there is morning stiffness some rheumatic component can also be present, advise is to get yourself throughly examined by orthopedician or interventional pain specialist for proper diagnosis and then further correct treatment, than taking pain killers for pain. Hope it helps.

Do the cat/cow stretch. Get on all fours, with your arms straight and your hands directly under your shoulders; your knees hip-width apart.
