Your feet may be one of the first places to see the effects of osteoporosis. A stress fracture in the foot is often the first sign.

There is a lot you can do throughout your life to prevent osteoporosis, slow its progression and protect yourself from fractures.

  • Include adequate amounts of calcium and vitamin D in your diet.
  • Exercise regularly.
