What You Should Know About Osteoporosis

Our bodies constantly break down old bone tissue and produce new bone tissue to replace it throughout our lifetimes. However, for the 10 million Americans who suffer from Osteoporosis, bone tissue either develops too slowly or breaks down too rapidly, or both. As a result, bones become thin, weak, and susceptible to fracture.

Since you can’t feel or tell that your bones are weakening, Osteoporosis is sometimes called a “silent disease.” You might not even realize you have it until you break a bone. And while it mainly affects adults over the age of 65, medical experts believe the underlying reasons might go back to childhood.

Though there isn’t much we can do about risk factors like genetics and race, we can take proactive measures to address environmental and lifestyle factors. Allow us to assist you if you’re wondering what such measures involve.

Here at Lowenhill Home Care Services, we not only give our best efforts toward delivering high-quality home care services. We also take great care in arming our community with essential health and wellness facts.

In light of that, below is a list of guidelines you can follow to improve your bone health and prevent Osteoporosis:

  • Get your daily dose of calcium and vitamin D.
  • Do weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening activities regularly.
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
  • Consult your doctor about your risk of developing Osteoporosis and when you should undergo a bone density test.
  • Take Osteoporosis medicine when advised by your provider.

Debunking Misconceptions About Diabetes

Diabetes is a complex and chronic condition in which the body has trouble controlling the level of glucose in the blood. The National Diabetes Statistics Report estimates that around 37.3 million people in the United States have Diabetes presently.

Despite its high occurrence, there is still a lack of awareness of the disease. Not only that, but several misconceptions only end up confusing people. This is one of the many gaps we strive to bridge here at Lowenhill Home Care Services.

Hoping to raise the community’s awareness of Diabetes, allow us to share common myths surrounding it, and reveal the facts behind them. These are the following:

  • Myth: No one in my family has Diabetes, so I won’t get the disease.

    Both type 1 and type 2 Diabetes are, indeed, influenced by family history. However, a lot of diabetics do not have any close relatives who also have the condition. Additionally, certain diseases and lifestyle decisions could make you more likely to develop type 2 Diabetes.

  • Myth: I have Diabetes, so I can never eat sweets.

    Sweets are not forbidden for diabetics if they are planned for. They can consume small quantities of sugar in place of other carbohydrates normally consumed at a meal.

  • Myth: I can stop taking Diabetes medicines once my blood sugar is under control.

    Diabetes is a chronic condition, so even if you take all the necessary precautions to be healthy, you may still require medication to keep your blood sugar levels within the recommended range.
