Obesity linked to osteoporosis.

For a few decades I have been informed that obesity is protective for osteoporosis. All that extra fat was producing estrogen and that was protective. All that load was good for the bones. Well – not so.

I think inflammation goes hand in hand with osteoporosis and new studies are showing that obesity is directly related to osteoporosis.

I see a lot of people who break their bones and when a big person goes to ground they can do a lot of damage. Add in osteoporosis and my day job as an Orthopaedic Surgeon is definitely getting more complex as time goes by.

Reducing inflammation and getting weight down will help. Cutting out the sugars is the first step down that path.
