Lifestyle Changes

Some doctors will prescribe bone building drugs as treatment for osteopenia, but most prefer to reserve these drugs for more severe osteoporosis treatment. The most common early treatment for osteopenia is a change in lifestyle. The best way to optimize your lifestyle to combat osteoporosis is to certain that your diet plus intake of calcium and vitamin D3 is in the healthy range, and to increase weight bearing exercise. If your doctor agrees, Fosteum PLUS is a good early addition to lifestyle changes.

In addition to taking Fosteum PLUS, as your doctor prescribes, there are some lifestyle changes you can make to help strengthen your bones.

  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Make sure your diet plus supplements give you enough calcium and vitamin D.
    Adult Age Calcium Vitamin D
    19-50 1000 mg 600 IU
    51-70 1200 mg 600 IU
    >70 1200 mg 800 IU
  • Exercise—even 30 minutes a day broken into 10 minute segments will help strengthen bone. Exercise can be walking, dancing or lifting weights. Even lifting one pound weights will help.
  • Do not drink more than one alcoholic beverage a day.
  • If you smoke, stop.
  • If you are underweight, try to gain to your optimal weight.
  • Make sure you discuss your bone health and risk factors with your doctor.

Information is available on the serious side effects and dangers of bone building drugs. Fosteum PLUS represents an entirely different and more natural approach to the dietary management of osteopenia and osteoporosis. Instead of just providing a diet for osteopenia, with calcium and vitamin D, or using a drug to slow down bone loss, Fosteum PLUS effectively balances and restores the normal metabolic processes involved in bone turnover. Fosteum PLUS has been shown to be both effective and safe in several clinical studies. Talk to your doctor about whether or not Fosteum PLUS is right for you.
