Not Me !!!

I often hear: “I do not have osteoporosis, but my friend…”  How are you certain that you do not have a bone health issue that could be improved upon?  By the simple belief of “not me !!!”  This I understand all too well after doing the same.

In bone health, the first sign of trouble is often a fracture, possibly a hip fracture, with a 20-30% chance of death.  This is not good.  In heart health, a rhythm problem, can lead to “V fib”, which often leads to death within minutes, unless you get to a defibrillator.  Also not good.

I now have a new 2-lead pacemaker with defibrilator.  I was completely unaware that my heart had become a ticking time bomb.  I was lucky to have a routine annual heart check-up scheduled.  Otherwise, my first warning could have been “V fib” with sudden death.  Really not good.

Once I realized I had a problem, I moved quickly to the solution – pacemeker defibrillator.  I wasted no time.  Now I am able to do all the things I want to – travel, grandchildren, etc.

You do not need to be as clueless as I was.  Take Control of your health. Check on your risks for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and bone health.  Then take action to correct problems.  Get a Complete Bone Health Evaluation as well as evaluation of the rest of your body.
