If you want to prevent and treat osteoporosis, taking calcium tablets is far from enough. You have to cooperate with other adjuvant treatments for better results!

Why  still have osteoporosis even taking many calcium tablets?

 

Treat osteoporosis, take calcium tablets as below:

For osteoporosis patients, it is recommended to supplement calcium tablets every day, but not just take calcium tablets. Calcium supplementation is a necessary condition, not a sufficient condition.

It is best to add calcium tablets 45 minutes to 1 hour after eating. At this time, the body secretes more gastric acid and can be fully digested and absorbed. “It is not recommended to take calcium tablets at night, especially for elderly people with poor kidney function or kidney stones. It is best to take them during the day. While supplementing calcium, vitamin D is added to promote calcium absorption. According to the condition, When necessary, use drugs such as bisphosphonates to inhibit the production of osteoclasts.”

 

Is it better to go to the sun after taking calcium tablets?

It is necessary to take calcium tablets and sun exposure, but you don’t need to go to the sun as soon as you eat calcium tablets. You should spend more time in the sun. Vitamin D can also be synthesized in the body to promote calcium absorption. However, there are also particular points to be exposed to the sun. Do not expose yourself to long-term exposure to avoid skin cancer. Generally, it is best to spend one to two hours in the sun after the sun rises in the morning or before the sun goes down in the evening.

In addition, regarding the choice of calcium tablets, do not simply choose calcium tablets containing only calcium, such as calcium gluconate, five-color calcium, etc., generally choose calcium tablets containing active vitamin D, tablets, granules, liquids, etc. Demand, choose practical products. “

 

Patients with osteoporosis need to pay attention to these points in their diet


● Eat more calcium-rich foods, such as dairy products, soy products, meat, fish, egg yolks, animal liver, etc.;

●Eat more foods rich in vitamin A, such as green vegetables, seaweed, natto, etc. can promote calcium absorption;

●Eat less or avoid foods that contain sodium, sugar and fat. Sugar and fat will not only inhibit the absorption of calcium from the intestines, but also cause disorders of calcium and phosphorus metabolism. Once phosphorus increases, it will inhibit calcium metabolism. , Easy to cause osteoporosis;

●Drink less strong tea and coffee; quit smoking and alcohol.

 

At the same time, I also remind you that after menopause, women and men over 60 years old should consciously prevent osteoporosis, take the initiative to supplement calcium tablets or use drugs for prevention. Patients suffering from rheumatism, endocrine and other diseases, especially hormone drugs, it is recommended to take preventive drugs as soon as possible. While supplementing calcium tablets and vitamin D, they should also change their bad habits, such as alcohol abuse, smoking, and long-term inactivity , Drinking coffee, strong tea, etc.
