World Osteoporosis Day
Osteoporosis is one of the biggest health issues facing the world today. In fact, right now it affects more than 1 million Australians.
But a further 6 million Aussies suffer from low bone density, and are at risk of developing Osteoporosis. Because there are no obvious symptoms, it can take a fracture before a diagnosis is made.
But here’s the good news.
A combination of diet, exercise and enough Vitamin D, which helps calcium absorption, can maintain healthy bones and may help prevent Osteoporosis.
Both calcium and Vitamin D are essential for healthy bones. Check your Vitamin D risk this World Osteoporosis Day (20th October) at D-Test.com.au.
