Help protect your bones from breaking by: Exercising, maintaining a healthy diet, getting the recommended amount of vitamin D and calcium, taking an approved osteoporosis medication.
If you have had fractures or are diagnosed with osteoporosis, talk to your doctor about medication options. You and your doctor can work out a plan that keeps you on your feet and active throughout your long and healthy life.
