Osteoporosis is a common problem among elders, especially in women. Statistics have shown that 46% of women develop osteoporosis when they pass the age of 60. However, because it rarely shows early symptoms, people do not realize the problem until it becomes severe and causes further complications.
Potential Consequences of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is like an “uncertain time bomb” buried in the body. You do not know when it will “explode,” but when it does, it can cause severe consequences and injure the body in various ways.
As we get older, we may feel pain after sneezing, lifting heavy objects, or exercising, and when it happens, we always think of it as a muscle sprain and decide to let it gets better on its own. But in fact, it can be the pain from several minor fractures.
And worse yet, osteoporosis is a chronic condition that, if not treated in time, the bones will become weaker and weaker until a very severe fracture occurs when you accidentally fall or hit something. According to statistics, 20% of patients pass away within a year after a hip fracture.
Supplements to Improve Osteoporosis
Taking extra care when treating osteoporosis can significantly reduce the risk of fractures. However, dealing with it needs more than just calcium.
The comprehensive treatment of osteoporosis is usually divided into 3 steps. The first step, which works for most young people, is eating more calcium tablets and drinking more milk.
For the elders, calcium supplementation is also good but not enough to fight osteoporosis because they cannot absorb calcium as well as young people. Hormonal fluctuations, especially in women after menopause, can lead to bone loss at a much higher rate than before. Therefore, they need the second and third steps of treatment: supplements to enhance calcium absorption and slow down bone loss.
Very few people know about the second and third steps, but they are more crucial for the elderly than the first.
Do I Have Osteoporosis?
OST (Osteoporosis Self-Assessment Tool) is a convenient test to know the risk of osteoporosis for women. (The following calculation only works for women but not men.)
The calculation is simple: Your weight in kilogram minus your age, and then divide the number by 5.
OST = (weight in kg – age) / 5
The result is your OST score, which means:
-20 to -4 are high risk
-4 to -1 are moderate risk
-1 to 20 are low risk
For example, a 58-year-old, 46-kg woman has an OST score of (58-46)/5=-2.4, which indicates a moderate risk.
Again, this score only works for women and is only a self-assessment tool. To be more precise, you can always go to an orthopedist for a BMD (bone mineral density) test.
