How Doctors and Employers Can Benefit from Virtual Reality Train…
The Doctors share the crazy story of a woman diagnosed with the very rare Gorham-Stout disease. Over the course of a year, this woman, who complained about pain her arm, had several X-rays. While doctors looked for an answer, the humerus bone in her arm actually started to fade away!
The Doctors show her before and after X-rays and you can see the bone becomes almost ghost-like! She had essentially lost all of the density in her humerus and was eventually diagnosed with Gorham-Stout disease. With this disease, abnormal blood vessels come in and replace the bone.
The disease is extremely rare—there are only 64 reported cases—but OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry wants to share with viewers the importance of managing bone loss, and preventing osteoporosis, a much more common condition.
Dr. Nita shares that 55% of Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. To prevent weakness and bone loss, calcium and vitamin D should be a part of your diet. Calcium makes the bones strong but vitamin D is needed for the calcium to be absorbed.
Exercising is also very important for keeping your bones healthy. Once your doctor approves, strength training should be incorporated into your fitness regimen.
