Nutrition Q & A

Are Men Over 50 at Risk for Osteoporosis?

While the incidence of osteoporosis is higher among women, more than 2 million American men suffer from osteoporosis according to the National Institutes of Health. One out of every two women and one in four men age 50 and older will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime.

Older adults need more calcium and vitamin D to help maintain bone health. Aim for three servings of vitamin D-fortified low-fat or fat-free milk or yogurt each day. Other calcium-rich foods include fortified cereals and fruit juices and dark green leafy vegetables. If you take a calcium supplement or multivitamin, choose one that contains vitamin D.
