Description

Osteoporosis is a major public health issue, affecting around three million people in the UK. Several lifestyle factors play a role in the development of the condition, including low physical activity, smoking, excess alcohol consumption and low intakes of bone health nutrients. The most important of these nutrients are vitamin D and calcium, which work in combination to strengthen and stabilise bone tissue. However, intake of calcium is low in some people, while vitamin D deficiency is widespread across the age spectrum. This learning module identifies key actions for improving bone health, with a focus on increased intake of beneficial nutrients.

Objectives

The aim of this module is to promote an understanding of bone turnover or bone remodelling and how dietary and lifestyle changes may help to improve bone health. This information will be of benefit to those at risk of developing osteoporosis, for example post-menopausal women, those who have experienced a fragility fracture because of weakened bones or individuals with distinct dietary and/or lifestyle patterns.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Define the terms osteomalacia and osteoporosis and recognise the impact of peak bone mass on these conditions.
Understand the biological processes involved in the cycle of bone turnover, also known as bone remodelling.
Identify the main nutrients involved in bone health and outline their role.
Recommend simple nutrition and lifestyle strategies that could help to improve bone health.

Sedentary lifestyle of post menopausal women and old ages place them at high risk of developing osteoporosis. Good dietary in take of calcium and vitamin D should be prescribe to children and young adults. Also harmful lifestyle such high consumption alcohol, smoking should be avoided.
