  1. Hi Kerryanne,

    Another highly informative and interesting article.

    I find it extremely thought-provoking that some of the risk factors you have listed are connected to dietary and activity levels, as well as certain lifestyle choices.

    I always, wrongly, assumed that osteoporosis was simply a condition that typically affected people as they got older.

    Whereas, this is probably the most common cause, it’s intriguing to learn that we have some control over whether osteoporosis can impact us as some stage in life.

    Thank you for your fascinating insights and keep up the great work.

    • Hello Partha, most people think it is simply an inevitable consequence of aging. And, even, as you say, it does come mostly with older years,it doesn’t have to be that way. However, we have to start working for it, seriously giving up unhealthy lifestyle we might have led before. Not everyone is ready to do that.
      Thank you for such a nice comment and appreciation of my work!
      All the best,

  2. Great post Kerryanne!

    I am 61 and ran my first marathon last year. Keeping moving, exercise and gym work for me at least is so important for health and wellness, both mentally and physically.

    This is a really thorough post and should be read by everyone over 45. You cover so much. I know I am probably healthier than most but just some walking and resistance work will do wonders. love your website!

    • Wow and WOW once more. Running a marathon at 61 is something. Doing it for the first time in your life is even better! That’s what I call a healthy attitude in life, bravo! I honestly hope my writing will help someone realise its importance.
      And, well, you loving my website just gladdens me a great deal. Thank you!

  3. As I approach the big 5-0, the information in this post about increasing bone density and fighting osteoporosis becomes more and more relevant to me. I like the way that you have presented the information and highlighted the importance of healthy living. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I think I tick nearly half the risk factors for developing osteoporosis! I do strength training though, so hopefully that will help with it. The visual aid you provided was extremely helpful in creating an image in my head of the effects that could occur.

    Very thorough article, I think everything that one would need to know was captured, so well done.

    • Hah! From your photo I’d say you are young enough to feel “warned” in time. Strength training is very important, but should be accompanied with a healthy lifestyle and then you can’t go wrong. Happy to “put” the image into your head, I sincerely hope it will pop-up occasionally in your mind as a reminder. Thank you for being here and taking the time to comment.
