The SECRET cause of bone breaks
Your doc will look you in the eye and say you've got nothing to worry about.
He'll pull up the numbers... show your bone mineral density is right smack in the middle of the "normal" zone... and say it means you're not at risk for a break or fracture.
But he knows he's lying.
He won't admit it, not unless you really put him on the spot, but docs see it all the time.
Patients come in with numbers just like yours. They might have a frame that looks stronger than Babe the ox, both on the test results and in person.
But then one day it happens anyway: SNAP!
A painful... debilitating... and possibly even crippling bone break.
Now, the latest research exposes what your doc has known but is afraid to tell you. You could have strong bones based on mainstream tests, yet still face a sky-high risk of a fracture.
The key to the puzzle?
If you have type 2 diabetes, you can throw the standard test results right out the window. You could have normal or even high bone mineral density, and it won't matter much.
The new study finds diabetes triggers damage to the cortical bone, or the outer layer of bone that's supposed to protect the whole package.
It's as if that critical layer is getting eaten away... yet that damage won't show up on any bone mineral density test.
That helps explain why folks with type 2 diabetes are up to 50 percent more likely to suffer from a hip fracture, one of the most debilitating forms of bone breaks in seniors and a top cause of disability.
Now that you know the risk, the next step is to do something about it!
You're not a delicate piece of china. Even if you're a little older... even if you have diabetes... you can take action today to strengthen your bone and cut the risk of those devastating breaks.
You know the basics, I'm sure. You need calcium. But calcium alone is useless, so don't take it by itself. Look for a supplement that also contains vitamin D and magnesium, which can help your body to put that calcium to use.
And be sure to look out for another ingredient backed by cutting-edge studies.
Oleuropein, a natural compound found in olives, can activate the stem cells that form bone. In one in vitro study, this compound increased the formation of the cells that create new bone tissue six times over.
A good bone support formula from a maker you trust will have all of these essentials in the amounts you need for healthy bone.
Most importantly of all, get your diabetes under control -- naturally -- to stop ALL forms of damage inside your body, including the destruction of that protective layer of bone.
