Protect your bone health

First slide

Around menopause which happens in India commonly between 40 and 50 we start losing bone mass which later can lead to osteoporosis. To prevent this, it is advised to take some form of calcium and Vitamin D3. Osteoporosis is detected by doing a bone densitometry. This can be done at any age but it should always be done at menopause so that we are aware of our bone health at the beginning of menopause and if required osteoporosis can be treated.
