Bone Health Webinar on May 22nd
Women diagnosed with bronchiectasis tend to be older and thin. Because of this, and the use of steroids to decrease lung inflammation, many of us also have osteoporosis or osteopenia.
I have osteoporosis, or I should say, had it, so bone health is an issue that interests me. In 2017, after eighteen years of having osteopenia, I crossed over into osteoporosis. I was also diagnosed with bronchiectasis and a MAI lung infection at about the same time, so needless to say, that was a difficult year for me.
By slowly changing my exercise and diet, I have recently returned to my osteopenia diagnosis. We are talking about a small shift on a bell-shaped curve, yet, still, a reason to pat myself on the back (gently, of course.)
On Sunday, May 22nd, National Jewish Health nutrition expert, Michelle MacDonald will talk to us about bone health and I will be listening intently. Because, small changes over time make a difference.
