"It's never too late to do something about your bone health." 
— Bart L. Clarke, M.D., Mayo Clinic

Today, thanks to advances here at Mayo and elsewhere, osteoporosis, the brittle bone disease that contributes to premature aging can be effectively managed or even avoided.

We no longer have to tolerate the pain and disability osteoporosis once caused.

That's just the start of the GOOD NEWS you'll find in our new edition of Mayo Clinic Guide to Preventing and Treating Osteoporosis.

This newly updated edition brings you a take-charge approach to preventing, diagnosing and managing osteoporosis. You'll find detailed guidance to promote better bone health through diet, supplements, exercise, medications and more …

  • You'll learn how to reduce your risk of fracture due to falling.
  • You'll read about the role of good posture, fitness, balance and coordination.
  • You'll discover the good news on the latest advances in medications for osteoporosis.
  • Plus you'll learn how to choose the treatment options that are best for you.

Using these strategies, together with the support of family and friends and the guidance of your personal physician, can offer you the best opportunity to prevent bone loss and continue to live an active, full and independent life.

This is not the kind of information that you want to ignore. Mayo Clinic has made it easy for you to take advantage of this healing wisdom, combining our findings into one easy-to-read, easy-to-use book.

Every week, another 40,000 older men or women suffer a painful bone fracture due to osteoporosis. We want to cut this number dramatically, starting with you.

The keys to successfully avoiding osteoporosis are building a strong skeleton when you're young and slowing the rate of bone loss as you age.

Even if you already have osteoporosis, good nutrition, exercise and medications can slow, or even reverse, its progression. It's never too late to do something about your bone health. This book will show you how.

Remarkable medical progress in just a few decades …

Until as recently as the 1940s, which is within the lifetime of many of our readers, doctors had a poor understanding of osteoporosis and its causes. Patients were often told to take calcium and just "live with it."

But since then, new thinking and advanced discoveries have transformed doctors' understanding of this disease. This means you live in the best times ever to reduce the impact of a disease that has crippled and disabled older adults for millennia.

Now all that's left is for you to put today's best medical wisdom to work in your own life. The advantages you'll gain for to doing so are substantial, including …

  • Reduced pain
  • Increased independence
  • A better quality of life

The same simple steps that help reduce osteoporosis risk also promote greater overall health, fitness, and wellbeing. Order today and learn how this book could help improve your quality of life!
