Prior to this issue, for the treatment of osteoporosis, first of all to correct several errors prone:

A misunderstanding: the calcium can cure

Many people mistakenly believe that the old man, bones, so to eat calcium to prevent osteoporosis. That's not the case.

Osteoporosis is a systemic metabolic bone disease. Women after menopause 5 to 10 years, men in the age of 65 to 70 years will generally appear osteoporosis. Whether male or female, usually in the 30 to 35 years of life to achieve the highest bone mass, called peak bone mass. Then the bone begins to lose. Thus, to the old bones strong, lay the groundwork before the age of 35. The foundation is thick, until the old is left much. So, a lot of elderly people and reduce bone calcium can not reverse the trend, they could not cure osteoporosis.

Myth two: the cause of debate

Osteoporosis can be divided into two categories: primary osteoporosis and secondary osteoporosis. According to the different types of osteoporosis, treatment is not the same, do not indiscriminate, all, otherwise there will be complications. Secondary osteoporosis, such as calcium malnutrition caused by osteoporosis, calcium supplementation is very effective; and for primary osteoporosis cannot relyoncalcium treatment. The vast majority of the elderly osteoporosis belong to primary osteoporosis, the elderly should be treated under the guidance of a doctor, what role did not blindly calcium.

At present, there is no effective means to cure osteoporosis, can only be done to prevent and slow down. Like some advertising as propaganda, eat some supplements, can cure osteoporosis, there is no reason why.

Myth three: the better the calcium supplement

Many old people mistakenly believe that the more calcium supplement, the more absorbed, the more bone formation. This is not the case. Usually, older than 60 years of age, need to take a daily dose of 800 mg of calcium. Excess calcium and into the bone, if the blood calcium content is too high. Can cause hypercalcemia and will cause complications, such as kidney stones, vascular calcification, endangering the health of the elderly.

Below, to introduce how to deal with osteoporosis

(a) for the treatment of vertebral fracture in acute period once that hard bed rest, a pillow under the knee to relieve stress under the waist. Pay attention to nursing can use some painkillers, the pain disappeared after start exercising daily and increase the amount of activity; severe pain can brace

(two) methods of increasing bone tissue

There are several therapeutic drugs:

1, Ossotide Tablets, the drug is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, oral bone peptide preparation only, can directly reach the osteoporosis site targeting, containing a variety of bone growth factor.

2, Allen phosphonate (alendronate): inhibit the role of osteoclasts, and prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

3, calcitonin (calcitonin): by subcutaneous, intramuscular injection or nasal absorption, for more than five years postmenopausal osteoporosis women. Side effects include loss of appetite, redness, rash, nausea and dizziness. However, as long as the cessation of drug treatment, the rate of bone loss will begin to accelerate, so long-term treatment must be.

4, agent and vitamin D: combined effect is better. The edge of calcium contains vitamin D, vitamin D is the calcium ion was absorbed by the bone marrow carrier, so that the human body to absorb calcium ions can be multiplied, better absorption.

5, hormone replacement therapy: estrogen plus progesterone, can prevent and treat osteoporosis. If you don't have a uterus, you don't need progesterone. Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a high incidence of postmenopausal women, foreign statistics show that women over the age of 60 the risk rate of 58%. With the synthesis of ovarian hormone levels decreased, resulting in pain, fractures, seriously affect women's quality of life, increased morbidity and mortality in women. Because of its pathogenesis has not been fully clarified, so the treatment of drugs have certain limitations, and long-term use of Western medicine is easy to bring many side effects to patients.

In addition, after the occurrence of osteoporosis, in addition to regular drug treatment, reasonable dietary nutrition and bad lifestyle changes will help patients improve symptoms,

1, control diet, avoid excessive intake of acidic substances, increased acidity. Most fruits and vegetables are all alkaline foods, and most of the meat, grain, sugar, wine, fish and other foods are acidic foods, health food and basic daily food acid intake ratio should comply with the proportion of 1:4. Shell oligo peptide is a kind of animal active alkali, can rapidly eliminate body fluids acidic substances, can maintain the blood calcium concentration in the human body to maintain stability, weak alkaline environment is to prevent and alleviate osteoporosis. 2, smoking will affect the formation of bone peak, excessive drinking is not conducive to the bones of strong coffee can increase the The new supersedes the old., urinary calcium excretion, affect the body's absorption of calcium, excessive intake of salt and excess protein will also increase calcium loss. Daily life should avoid the formation of these bad habits. 3, exercise can promote the body's metabolism. Outdoor exercise and the right amount of sunlight are beneficial to the absorption of calcium. Contraction of the muscles during exercise, the direct effect on the skeletal traction, will help increase bone density. Therefore, proper exercise is also beneficial for the prevention of osteoporosis. 4, prevent calcium deficiency must also develop good habits, avoid excessive intake of acidic substances, exacerbated by acidic. Such as the night to sing Cara OK, playing mahjong, night life and other rules, will increase the physical acidification. We should develop good habits, so as to keep the weakly alkaline, to prevent the occurrence of osteoporosis. 5, do not eat contaminated food, such as contaminated water, crops, poultry and fish balls, to eat some green organic food, to prevent the Disease enters by the mouth. 6, maintain a good mood, do not have too much psychological pressure, excessive pressure will lead to the deposition of acidic substances, affecting the normal metabolism. Proper regulation of mood and self stress can maintain alkaline constitution, thereby preventing the occurrence of osteoporosis.

Finally, to determine whether you have osteoporosis

1, your parents have a slight collision or fall will happen hip fracture?

2, have you ever hurt your bones because of a slight collision or fall?

3, you often continuously for more than 3 months of taking cortisone, prednisone and other hormone drugs?

4, your height is reduced by 3 cm?

5, do you often drink too much?

6. Do you smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day?

7, do you often suffer from diarrhea diarrhea?

8, the woman replied: are you before the age of 45 menopause?

9, have you ever had more than 12 months without menstruation (in addition to pregnancy)?

10, the man replied: do you suffer from erectile dysfunction or lack of libido symptoms?

If the subjects had any one answer to the question is "yes", it means that there is a risk of osteoporosis, but this does not prove that the subjects suffering from osteoporosis, whether suffering from this disease need to be related to check bone density testing to draw a conclusion.

Finally, I wish you all a healthy and strong bones.
