We now have a variety of pharmacologic options for treating osteoporosis which are effective in increasing bone density, but more importantly decreasing the risk of fractures. However, rather than treating osteoporosis, what advice can we give our patients that will help prevent loss of bone mass and hopefully prevent osteoporosis. Do we know what it takes to build strong, healthy bones? Which nutrients are important for bone development? What role does exercise play and what type of exercise should we be recommending? I’ll be asking these questions and more to our guest, Daniel L. Hurley, M.D., an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic as we discuss “Bone Basics and Tips for Good Bone Health”.
