Ludhiana: On the eve of World Osteoporosis Day, awareness event was organised by Fortis Hospital, Ludhiana. The event was organised under the supervision of Vivan Singh Gill, director, Fortis Hospital, Ludhiana.
Gill said, Osteoporosis, the disease that causes bones to become less dense and more prone to fractures, has been called “a pediatric disease with geriatric consequences”, because the bone mass attained in childhood and adolescence is an important determinant of lifelong skeletal health. The health habits your kids are forming now can make or literally break their bones as they age.
Giving more information, Dr Sanjeev Mahajan, director and head orthopaedics department, Fortis Hospital, Ludhiana said, “typically, when parents think about their childrens’ health, they don’t think about their bones. But building healthy bones by adopting healthy nutritional and lifestyle habits in childhood are very important to help prevent osteoporosis and fractures later in life.”
