My Grandmother just fell and broke her shoulder and that reminded me of this thread. She has osteoporosis because she is quite old and has lost a lot of weight quickly. I have osteopenia from too much prednisone, and a lot of people with lupus do too.

Here are some tips for helping build and keep bone density. Dancing is the top of the list!

Here's a Spark plan for bone health. It's one of those calendars they do and it's for May, but no need to wait for May. It has lots of tips like "limit caffeine" and "go for yoga" and "pump iron"

I'm biased because I'm lactose intolerant....and I'm also *living proof* that we don't need dairy for strong bones because I regained most of the bone density I lost on a high dose of prednisone, without a drop of milk! I haven't had dairy since 2000!

The thing my dietician said was that milk does have a lot of calcium in it, but it's not an absorbable source.

And dairy is hard to digest and high in calories!

I must confess that I hardly every take a calcium supplement even though I know I should. They're just so big I don't like having to swallow them.

Great information, thanks for sharing! I also have had some marked bone loss from prednisone, and have osteopenia. I am hoping my next scan shows some improvement.
So many people think dairy is the only/best way to get calcium, but it's absolutely not true! There are plenty of foods that have just as good or even better amounts of calcium, and are better for you! Also, I never realized weight bearing exercise helped with bone loss until I started doing some research. Now I make sure to make it part of my routine!!

Here's some info about plant foods that are high in calcium. Plant foods (fruit and veg) are low in calories and rich in vitamins!

Hello! "Strong Women Have Strong Bones" is the name of a book I read a long time ago. I know it's not always true though...strong women sometimes have to take prednisone, and eventually hit menopause....and those are two reasons we might have to work at having strong bones.

I've been taking prednisone for a long time so I had a lot of bone loss, but I've recovered most of it with weight bearing exercise and a lot of plant-based calcium-rich food.

Let's share tips for bone health! My tips for today is a Spark blog: The Surprising Benefits of Nut Butter/The Best Nut Butter for Healthier Bones:
