Do Underweight Men and Women have Low Bone Mass ? And could you get osteoporosis in a Younger Age? im 20 years old

The best way to maintain bone density even at a young age is to continue weight bearing exercise...Walking, jogging, etc. And get enough calcium and vitamin d in your diet. At least 1200 mg of calcium and 1000 iu of vitamin are recommended to maintain healthy bones. There may be some genetic factors at work in the development of osteoporosis as well, but dietary calcium and exercise are the best defense. ...Read more
