We all know how important bone health is for every day life. Without healthy bones, things like sports become impossible. Likewise, if your bones aren’t healthy, then daily tasks like getting out of bed in the mornings or cleaning the house will become extremely difficult.
Unfortunately, a lot of people realize this too late and they start desperately trying to improve their bone health when they are older. But, the thing about healthy bones is that you need to start looking after them when you’re young.
So, if you have children, then you’re going to want to make sure that you take steps to protect their bones now so that their bones remain healthy when they get older.
Osteoporosis, known as the ‘silent disease’, is a medical condition where your bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue. It’s called the silent disease because it doesn’t exhibit symptoms like other diseases to tell you there is something wrong.
Many times people don’t find out they have it until they fracture a bone or happen to get a bone scan test.
By then, a considerable amount of bone density could have been lost without the individual knowing about it. However, there can be some telltale signs to warn you about this silent disease if you’re aware of what to watch for.
