by Belinda O’Connell, M.S., R.D., C.D.E.

Have your risk for osteoporosis evaluated now, before problems occur, then do your part to lower your risk by taking steps such as increasing your activity level and consuming enough calcium and vitamin D to prevent it early. Talk with your health-care team about your risk factors for osteoporosis today, before frail bones and possibly fractures slow you down.
