Bones continue to grow and change throughout a lifetime, which is why a broken bone will mend. After about age 30 when bones achieve their peak mass, however, bones start to breakdown faster than they rebuild. Hormone changes at menopause often trigger increased bone loss for women. Find out how your bones are doing by asking your health provider for a bone mineral density (BMD) test. Optimize bone health by enjoying a wellbalanced diet including adequate bone-building calcium and vitamin D. Participate in weight-bearing exercise like walking, cycling and yoga and consider investing in some handweights for lifting as you relax in front of the television. Support your bones, and they’ll be more able to support you!
