English blog (29) : Bone and Muscle (2)

The topic of Matsumi Ladies Clinic Mita English blog in July is about bone and muscle.

In the second part, I create an article focusing on a famous disease of the bone, named “Osteoporosis” suitable for easy reading.

 

Do you know about “Osteoporosis”?

It is a common disease, especially for women.

However, many healthy people don’t care about it before a tragic event happens.

It’s worth learning about your bones relating to ageing.

 

The healthy bone has much tiny space inside, which is like honeycomb.

As you get older, the holes get bigger, so that the bone density declines.

It means that the outside also gets thinner.

This is the symptom of osteoporosis.

 

The bone strength declines at a faster rate after menopause, the reasons of which is due to lack of estrogen.

Lack of estrogen causes an imbalance of absorption and reconstruction of bone tissue.

When bones become weaker, you are likely to fracture the bones.

 

How can you protect your bones before it gets worse?

There are some earlier symptoms as listed below.

①Receding gums
②Brittle nails
③Weaker grip strength

 

Osteoporosis is preventable from an early age with a healthy balanced diet.

The intake of sufficient calcium and vitamin D is essential.

 

Calcium is rich in the listed foods.

①Milk and Cheese
②Soya beans
③Tofu
④Nuts
⑤Fish where you eat the bones
⑥Green leafy vegetables (Okura and broccoli, etc.)

 

Vitamin D is rich in the listed foods.

①Eggs
②Fortified breakfast cereals and milk
③Oily fish
④Sunbathing (a short period is enough)

 

Your bones are a framework of your body, which protect the internal organs and store nutrients to keep your health.

Have a happy life with strong bones!
