Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Background: Osteoporosis is a disease characterised by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to increased bone fragility and a consequent increase in fracture risk, especially among postmenopausal women. Management strategies for osteoporosis focus on reducing modifiable risk factors such as poor nutrition, insufficient physical activity, smoking, and heavy alcohol consumption.

Objective: The aim of this systematic review is to examine the effects of lifestyle interventions on bone health in women at high risk of osteoporosis.
