How do your bones stack up?

I recently had a bone density check and was told that I needed more calcium in my diet. We’ve all heard of osteoporosis but there is also a condition known as osteopenia which is basically a precursor to osteoporosis. It’s important that we all know how are bones are doing — also dubbed the silent disease, bone loss can creep up on us even if we’re doing everything right — eating calcium-enriched foods, exercising, watching our stress levels etc. It’s a simple bone density test that can tell you where you stand — so don’t be a lazy bones, take the necessary steps to know your numbers, this way you can make informed decisions about your health. Note: Keep in mind that calcium not only helps keep your bones healthy, but it also helps with proper muscle function.
Fact: We’re born with 300 bones, but when we become adults we have 206.
