When it comes to osteoporosis, many friends think it is a kind of “senile disease”, but in fact, if there is no active calcium supplement, bone care and other measures, the body’s bone density will slowly decline from the age of 30, bone loss, and the risk of osteoporosis will gradually increase.In other words, osteoporosis is not the “age-related disease” that most people think it is. Even people in their 30s and 40s have osteoporosis, which means that most people have a need and obligation to be aware of the risks of osteoporosis.The everyday causes of osteoporosis are certainly worth your attention.What behaviors in daily life are likely to cause osteoporosis?1) Long-term low calcium intake is essential for bone formation and development. Only sufficient calcium intake can effectively activate the secretion of osteoblasts, improve bone mass and prevent osteoporosis.Such as milk, eggs, meat, etc., some friends may not naturally like to eat these foods, but they almost cover all the sources of daily calcium.Over time, maintaining a low calcium intake for a long time lowers osteoblast levels and increases the risk of osteoporosis.Smoking and drinking alcohol smoking and drinking alcohol are recognized as bad habits that can cause damage to bones as well as to organs such as the lungs and liver.For example, alcohol will be absorbed through the intestinal tract and enter the nervous system, reducing the secretion efficiency of bone growth hormone, resulting in bone loss and increased fragility.Or substances such as nicotine and tobacco poison synthesize with calcium earlier in the body, reducing the amount of calcium available to the bones and increasing the risk of osteoporosis.Giving up smoking and drinking in time is not only the way to avoid lung disease and liver disease, but also the only way to prevent osteoporosis.3) Stay in bed for a long time and lack of exercise exercise is one of the ways to increase bone mass. Active exercise can effectively improve the rate of bone absorption of nutrients and contribute to bone development.On the other hand, if you stay in bed for a long time, your bones stay in the same position and blood circulation is slow, your bones are less efficient at absorbing calcium and vitamin D, and the efficiency of bone formation is reduced, thus increasing the risk of osteoporosis.In summary, the causes of osteoporosis in life, please do your daily prevention, in the prevention of osteoporosis, but also do not forget to regularly check their own bone health, timely discovery of early osteoporosis symptoms, for treatment and subsequent prevention of bone loss, can also play an effective role in helping.So, how can you effectively self-test for osteoporosis?Try the “1+1” self-test method: simply put, it is through “1 question”, “1 formula” way, to predict the overall bone health status.First is “1 ask” : ask yourself whether there are the following several situations: ① age ≥65 years old;(2) Whether there is a history of serious falls;(3) Whether there is a history of osteoporosis in the family;(4) whether the female menopause before 45 years old;⑤ Whether obvious symptoms of bone pain often exist;⑥ There is no history of steroid steroid use.If more than half of the answers to the above six questions are “yes”, there is a high probability of osteoporosis, and it is necessary to go to the hospital for timely treatment.If your calculated risk index is greater than -1, how does it mean that the risk of osteoporosis is relatively low?If the risk index is less than -4, it indicates that there is a relatively obvious trend and risk of osteoporosis. It is recommended to seek help from the hospital and take effective measures to prevent bone loss.However, even if the risk of osteoporosis is detected, don’t panic too much.Active prevention can also help avoid the risk of serious bone disease later on.Such as regular exercise, active calcium and vitamin D supplements, regular physical check-ups, although simple, are effective prevention methods.Reference: [1] Chen Xin.One minute self-test for osteoporosis [J].
