Today is World Osteoporosis Day which is a campaign that aims to put a spotlight on the condition and wants to raise awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment for osteoporosis. There is no known cure, but there are treatments to help improve bone density or to slow or stop bone loss from continuing to occur. Osteoporosis is very common, with more than 200,000 cases per year in the UK alone. Bone density is also affected during menopause when estrogen drops meaning fractures are more common as women age.
In today’s blog, we will be rounding up some of the very best ways you can build strong and healthy bones.
This month (October) is Menopause Awareness Month and the 18th is World Menopause Day. The purpose of this month and day is to raise widespread awareness and educate women and professionals on support and treatment options to help improve the health and wellbeing of women across the planet.
Menopause symptoms can be severe and have a big detrimental impact on those affected. Education is the key for women to know what to expect and know where and how to get support if and when they need it.
