Discussion about osteoporosis on The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk

Pat Kenny on The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk interviews Dolores Lawlor Pierson who has osteoporosis and Dr. Donncha O’Gradaigh, Consultant Rheumatologist, Department of Rheumatology in University Hospital Waterford. Dolores talks about how she was diagnosed with osteoporosis at the age of 35. Dr O’Gradaigh explains more about the disease and how to prevent it.

Really interesting discussion that covers all the issues. This is particularly good on prevention mentioning smoking, lack of exercise, not getting enough calcium in childhood. Well worth a listen.
