Osteopenia is weak bone density that isn't severe enough to be osteoporosis; people with the condition graduate to the latter when the bones become so thin that they easily break. Generally, bone density peaks at around 35 years old, but a regular practice of healthy habits can serve as treatments for osteopenia and slow its progression toward osteoporosis.


1. A Healthy Lifestyle

Everyone should strive for a healthy lifestyle. Being healthy can improve every aspect of your life, so it goes without saying that a healthy lifestyle can keep your bones strong and lower your chance of developing osteoporosis. By improving diet and exercise, your bones will get stronger.
