Caring for health-preventing osteoporosis

When it comes to "osteoporosis", most people may know a little or two, but few people realize its seriousness. As a nursing worker in the rheumatology department, I hope to combine the relevant disease knowledge and clinical work experience of the department To learn osteoporosis and related complications together with everyone, and learn some common sense to prevent osteoporosis in daily life.

Osteoporosis can lead to shortened height and kyphosis. In severe cases, osteoporotic fractures can occur. The fracture will cause the patient to be bedridden, and may also cause respiratory system and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, such as pneumonia or thrombosis. In severe cases, it may be life-threatening and cause a great mental and economic burden to the patient. Therefore, the prevention of osteoporosis should start from now on, and the following points should be done in daily life:

1. Eat more foods with high calcium content. Foods with high calcium content, such as dairy products, soy products, shrimp skin, low salt and moderate protein, fish, mushrooms, fungus, green leafy vegetables, etc., should be consumed from childhood.

2. Adhere to a scientific lifestyle. To prevent osteoporosis, physical exercise should be adhered to, and more sunbathing should be accepted.

3. Try to get rid of "risk factors". Do not smoke, drink alcohol, drink less coffee, strong tea and carbonated beverages, and eat less sugar and salt.

4. Prevention of osteoporosis Advocating late marriage and childbearing, keeping calcium in the body as much as possible, breastfeeding period should not be too long, enrich calcium storehouse, and increase bone peak to the maximum is the best measure to prevent osteoporosis later in life.

5. Middle-aged people should have bone density examination. From middle age to middle age, especially after menopause, bone loss accelerates. During this period of prevention of osteoporosis, bone density should be checked once a year, early detection and early treatment.
