* In the latest in this hugely successful series the clinical director of the National Osteoporosis Foundation introduces a comprehensive programme for the prevention of osteoporosis and bone density loss.
With over 28 million Americans threatened, osteoporosis is a word on every female patient's lips. Felicia Cosman had specialised in the disorder for 20 years but when she had her first bone density scan her levels were lower than any patient she'd ever treated. In her years in the field she had learned that despite conventional treatment precedence, medical therapy for pre-menopausal women is NOT the answer. Every woman should be following a universal, preventive programme, outlined in this book but not every woman needs medical therapy. The book tells you how to reduce your risks, the importance of diet and exercise and the full stories behind conventional medical therapy.
