      Signs that your bones are in trouble

      Our bones provide the necessary support for the body and help to maintain the shape. They also serve to protect the various organs. Therefore, it’s very important to pay enough attention to your bones and keep them healthy. Here are a few warning signs that your bones could be in trouble.

      Receding gums

      You may not notice receding gums immediately as this is a process that happens over years. When your jawbone loses strength and bone mass, this happens. Make sure that you check on your gum strength whenever you visit your dentist.

      Losing grip?

      If the strength of your grip has gone down, it’s time to start worrying! In a research study done on post-menopausal women, it was identified that handgrip strength was the most important test that helped in ascertaining overall bone mineral density. Weakness in one section of the bones can point to weakness in other places as well.


      If you find that you got a fracture from a minor action such as taking a misstep off the curb, it can signify that you may have the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis. If so, get your bones checked.

      Cramps, muscle aches and body pain

      As you age, you are likely to have aches and body pain. However, this is not just about aging, these can be a sign of Vitamin D deficiency. Frequent muscle cramps especially in the feet and legs are a sign of vitamin or mineral deficiencies. If you keep getting frequent leg cramps at night, it may be because your calcium, magnesium, and/or potassium blood levels are inadequate. Over a period of time, this can cause bone loss.

      Leading a sedentary life?

      If you are not active and lead a sedentary life, this can weaken your bones. This can lead to osteoporosis later in life. Regular exercise helps to strengthen your bones.
