Bone density

Importance

Bone density and associated osteoporosis (loss of bone mass) is a disease that affects 7–8% of the population and is up to 70% genetically determined. Yet, this process can be influenced, and you can do a lot yourself.

Prevention

In addition to avoiding smoking, caffeine and alcohol, doctors also recommend proper intake of vitamins and minerals. The most appropriate combination is the use of calcium together with vitamin D and vitamin K, which directs the deposition of calcium in the necessary places and helps with bone elasticity.

Examination

You can undergo a non-invasive and painless densitometry test to find out your bone density. By detecting the premature symptoms of osteoporosis and setting up the right treatment associated with the necessary vitamins, you can prevent complications with frequent fractures.
