I am an osteoporosis patient. I discovered when I broke my wrest falling from a single stair step height. That was at the age of 30. My life has changed completely since then.
Before that point I used to build muscles naturally, only involving exercise and nutrition. No drugs of any kind were allowed to pass through my mouth, until one day I had a lung infection that developed into asthma and I had to be treated with steroids, corticosteroids, and all sorts of chemicals that my body wasn’t used to.
Imagine going from a drug free life (even of aspirin and Tylenol) into being treated with all these chemicals. Moreover, after developing asthma my life style had to dramatically change. I wasn’t allowed to do anything that makes me breath faster than normal and I had to keep it that way until a year later I had my first fracture.
And that was the beginning. In the same year I had 5 fractures, one of them was when I blew up a rip while coughing. That was before I turn 31. I went from an athlete to what I used to consider “nothing” just a year before.
Because I don’t want to see that happening to anyone I am spreading the awareness with osteoporosis locally to my friends and family. And to extend my efforts further I put together this website.
Osteoporosis-info.net is monetized with advertising from third party entities. This is how I pay for the domain name, hosting, and the maintenance of this website.
Please spread the word to every one you know. Preventing osteoporosis can be done, and is way better than treating it.
