MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.
This week on MD for Moms, I interview endocrinologist Dr. Rakhil Rubinova about bone health. Do you know your bone density? Any sense of why it matters, what is normal and reasons for abnormalities? Women are at an significantly increased risk of osteopenia and osteoporosis, and having poor bone health leads to fractures, most commonly of the wrist, spine and hip. Suffering from osteopenia and osteoporosis is asymptomatic until a fracture happens, which makes it incredibly important that women consider their bone health early and often, and that we all work to keep our bones healthy and strong. Dr. Rubinova explains bone health in detail for women, who is at greatest risk, why it matters and how to improve it.
