E-Zlab is specialized in blood work & medical tests at home & work.

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by a certain loss of the bone tissue.

If the bones have become fragile, the risk of fracturing them is high (hip, wrists and spine).

The symptoms of osteoporosis are insidious, because the loss of the bone mass appears without notice.

According to the Ostéoporose Canada organization, more than 2 million people are affected by this disease. One man out of eight and one woman out of five are in this predicament.

The consumption of calcium and vitamin D remains the best means of osteoporosis prevention, accompanied by physical exercise. Here are some food items that contain calcium and vitamin D : all dairy products, including yogurts, fatty fish, egg yolks, cheese, lentils etc.
