What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Osteoporosis: Help Prevent--And Even Reverse--The Disease That Burdens Millions of Women (What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About...)by Felicia Cosman
Synopses & Reviews
The clinical director of the National Osteoporosis Foundation Introduces a comprehensive program for preventing and treating osteoporosis and bone loss. With over 10 million Americans currently suffering from osteoporosis--and millions more at risk--awareness of the disease has been brought to the forefront. Many women try everything from calcium pills to lifting weights in hopes of increasing bone density to prevent this devastating condition. Dr. Felicia Cosman, who has specialized in osteoporosis for 15 years, asserts that every woman should be following a universal prevention plan. This comprehensive guide to a lifelong strategy covers everything women need to know, from the architecture of the condition, to methods for reducing risk factors, to preventative nutrition, exercise, supplements, and vitamins--and the latest findings about estrogen and hormone replacement therapy. But prevention may not be enough--bone density testing is also a crucial yet often misused component of diagnosis. This breakthrough approach presents women of all ages with new, safe, and accessible means of preventing osteoporosis.
x Osteoporosis, along with low bone mass, is currently estimated to be a major health threat for almost 44 million men and women over the age of 50 in the U.S. This huge audience is hungry for books about the disease.
x Dr. Cosman is a national spokesperson for osteoporosis as the clinical director of the National Osteoporosis Foundation. In addition to her practice, she is an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia. She has been featured as an expert in hundreds of magazines and articles, has appeared on the Today show, and is a frequent moderator and Web expert on www.webmd.com.

With over 10 million Americans currently suffering from osteoporosis-and millions more at risk-awareness of the disease has been brought to the forefront.
