Osteoporosis affects one third of all women over the age of 50, and one in eight men. In this program medical experts explain what osteoporosis is and how it develops, outlining risk factors and early warning signs while stressing the importance of diet, supplements, and exercise as preventive measures. Medical treatments, and ways to keep low bone density from progressing to osteoporosis or even bone fracture, are also covered in the video. Dr. Thomas Gleason of the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute provides expert commentary, and people with the disease-including a 41-year-old personal trainer-describe how it can limit their daily activities if left untreated.
