Avoid those: Things which can decrease bone density such as tobacco, alcohol, inactivity, muscular disorders, arthritis, certain medication such as seizure drugs/cortisone/etc, lung of liver disease. To increase bone density make sure calcium and vitamin d intake are adequate and use weight bearing exercise and keep active. Also, if density low, avoid potential accidents/trauma.
