For osteoporosis in the elderly, the following methods can be tried in terms of calcium supplementation.
1. First, the elderly should take some calcium supplement drugs regularly. For example, the patients can take some common drugs such as calcium carbonate, calcium lactate, and calcium gluconate. In addition, some liquid calcium can be absorbed better. Yes, so it is more suitable for the elderly. While supplementing calcium, it is also necessary to supplement some vitamin D for the elderly, because the intake of vitamin D is conducive to the absorption and utilization of calcium.
2. When the patient supplements the above nutrients, some fat-soluble vitamins can be appropriately supplemented. The elderly can eat more cod liver oil, which can promote the utilization of the above nutrients.
3. Such patients should eat more foods rich in calcium and protein, such as fish and milk.
The elderly usually eat a lot of health products. As the body functions gradually age, the vitamin d in the body has also become poor. The lack of vitamin d cannot be ignored for the elderly.
*What is the role of vitamin D
Vitamin d is a fat-soluble vitamin. The common ones are d2 and d3, called ergocalciferol and cholecalciferol, mainly derived from animals and some plants.
Vitamin D can regulate calcium metabolism and improve the body's absorption of calcium and phosphorus. The calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood reach saturation, which promotes the body to reach the maximum bone peak and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. Increase the absorption of phosphorus through the intestinal wall and increase the reabsorption of phosphorus through the renal tubules.
