The clinical director of the National Osteoporosis Foundation Introduces a comprehensive program for preventing and treating osteoporosis and bone loss. With over 10 million Americans currently suffering from osteoporosis--and millions more at risk--awareness of the disease has been brought to the forefront. Many women try everything from calcium pills to lifting weights in hopes of increasing bone density to prevent this devastating condition. Dr. Felicia Cosman, who has specialized in osteoporosis for 15 years, asserts that every woman should be following a universal prevention plan. This comprehensive guide to a lifelong strategy covers everything women need to know, from the architecture of the condition, to methods for reducing risk factors, to preventative nutrition, exercise, supplements, and vitamins--and the latest findings about estrogen and hormone replacement therapy. But prevention may not be enough--bone density testing is also a crucial yet often misused component of diagnosis. This breakthrough approach presents women of all ages with new, safe, and accessible means of preventing osteoporosis.
