My mother is suffering bone loss and I’m afraid I may be at risk as well. Is there anything I can do now to prevent bone loss in the future?
Taking calcium alone is not enough to stop bone loss. It is a good idea to see a physician and get your vitamin D tested. It is very common to have low levels of vitamin D and this makes it difficult for your body to maintain strong, healthy bones. The amount of vitamin D in your multi-vitamin may not be enough. A simple blood test will tell.
