Our expert says:
A baseline bone density should be done and depending on the results, you should have it done every 18-24 months. Discuss this with your doctor. Exercise is quite important- try walking briskly for at least 45 minutes 3xweek. You also need at least 1000mg of calcium and 800IU of vit D per day. Too much alcohol is bad for bones- try and limit intake to 2-3 glasses per day. You can also contact the osteoporosis foundation for more info- tel 021 9317894.
