Eat Fish - Save Your Bones!

Fish Bones? We usually try to avoid this combination, but not anymore!

Fish oils may well protect your bone mass, preventing osteoporosis and osteoporosis-related fractures. Largo residents surely want to avoid those! Largo men especially should want to avoid those fractures since their risk of death from osteoporosis-related fractures during their initial hospital stay or within the year following the fracture is twice that of women's. (1) So, let's prevent those fractures.

We at Hollstrom & Associates Inc love when new articles like this come out that are so practical for our patients. From the Framingham Osteoporosis Study comes this latest study discussing the benefits of polyunsaturated fatty acids and fish for guarding bone mass health. Fish oils - source of the omega-3 oils EPA, DHA, ALA- are well known for their positive impact on heart health and cholesterol control.

Now, the fish oils' good may well be farther reaching. Researchers found that eating 3 or more servings of fish per week is associated with maintaining bone mass density. This leads to the conclusion that fish may well protect against bone loss. (2)

Save Money and Pain

Preserving bone mass and preventing osteoporosis and its related fractures may save our healthcare system some money and us the agony of dealing with osteoporosis treatments and fracture recovery. In 2008, it was estimated that $22 billion is spent in the U.S. on elderly patients suffering with osteoporosis and the fractures. (3) Some of that was spent right here in Largo.
