Trigger warning: this episode includes discussion of disordered eating patterns.
How conscious are you of your bone health? Dr Kuki Avery and Dr Laura Flexer join Liz on this episode of The Liz Earle Wellbeing Show to chat more about the connections between oestrogen and bone density.
Laura and Kuki – both GPs and menopause specialists – share shocking statistics on fractures, and offer helpful advice on what we should be doing now to protect our bone health for later life.
They cover how to tell if you’re getting enough calcium with a simple online tool, plus the importance of vitamin D for bone health.
The episode also contains discussion of disordered eating, and the links to poor bone health as a result.
