Osteoporosis Management and follow up
Selective oestrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) SERMs are medications that have a similar effect on bone as the hormone oestrogen. They help to maintain bone density and reduce the risk of fracture, particularly of the spine. Raloxifene is the only type of SERM that’s available for treating osteoporosis.
Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn’t properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities. But increasingly, research is revealing the importance of vitamin D in protecting against a host of health problems.
Bone health refers to the strength of your bones. Healthy bones are determined by bone density. Somewhere in your 20’s most people have acquired most of his or her skeletal mass. A decline in bone mass starts to occur in the mid 30’s and continues more quickly in older adults, increasing the risk of osteoporosis.
