When you think of women’s health, you might not immediately think of bone health. However, bone health is extremely important to consider, as female bones in their mid-life are at a critical turning point. By the age of 60, many women can lose up to 25% of their bone mass, losing the bone quicker than the body can replace it. As a result of this, bones will become thin, weak and fragile, and when too much bone is eroded, one can develop osteoporosis.
To an extent, osteoporosis can be prevented but some women still experience significant enough bone loss to require medical treatment.
