All of the following decrease the risk of osteoporosis except
What is BMI?
The risk of osteoporosis goes down in all of the following ways, except for having a low body weight. Osteoporosis is more likely to happen to women with a low BMI. Most other risk factors that can be changed aren’t as big of a deal as a one-unit change in BMI, which is about 5 to 8 pounds. Patients should be told to stay at a healthy weight to help lower their risk of getting osteoporosis. Low BMI makes it more likely that you will break a bone. This could be because low BMI is linked to low bone mineral density (BMD), less soft tissue, and weak muscles. The link between high BMI and fracture risk is more complicated.
