With osteoporosis, it’s important to prevent falls and fractures. But that doesn’t mean sitting on the sidelines. Learn about living with and managing osteoporosis.

Living and Coping

Fall prevention is important for people with osteoporosis, in order to protect their bones. Read tips for fall prevention.

Nutrition and osteoporosis are closely linked. If you're not getting the right nutrients, whether in your diet or through supplements, you're putting yourself at greater risk for osteoporosis.

What to eat to prevent osteoporosis: see which foods are high in calcium and vitamin D.

Osteoporosis means "porous bones." Our bones are strongest at about age 30, then begin to lose density.

Our bones remain strong throughout young adulthood. As we hit middle age, they slowly begin to thin out.
