Inflammatory Markers and Incident Fracture Risk in Older Men and Women
As mentioned above, the approach to increasing bone mass needs to extend far beyond what is the current “standard of care.” Despite calcium supplementation showing little benefit in clinical trials for osteoporosis (note that calcium from diet is important, but that additional supplementation to a healthy diet full of calcium will not show much of a benefit) that is all that is ever recommended by mainstream medicine.
The bottom line is that inflammation is a major player in bone health. Higher levels of inflammation means more calcium is released into the bloodstream from the osteoclasts. So, any patient diagnosed with osteoporosis is likely demonstrating higher levels of inflammation, which will also increase the risk for any number of other chronic diseases. NOT addressing this aspect of osteoporosis can sentence the patient to an early death from some other cause.
