Summary
"Dr. Lani's No-Nonsense Bone Health Guide: The Truth About Density Testing, Osteoporosis Drugs and Building Bone Quality at Any Age is part whistle-blower book, part bone health bible. This is the first consumer book to expose the shocking difficulty of getting an accurate bone density reading and the serious risks of long term use of the most recent osteoporosis medications such as Fosamax, Boniva, and Reclast, which are often handed out automatically based on inaccurate readings.In addition to discussing the pros, cons, and serious risks of medications, Dr. Simpson shares her whole-body approach to bone health, which includes discussions of digestive health, diet, supplements, and exercise. Readers will learn surprising facts about what foods and medicines might hurt bone health and which ones will help in building strong bones. Dr. Simpson includes a careful breakdown of calcium supplementation and which kind is best. The book also includes basic bone biology, statistics about bone disease and fractures, how aging affects the bones, comparisons of different fracture-risk assessment procedures, the risks and benefits of drugs and alternative treatments, and even recipes for bone-building meals!"-- Provided by publisher
