Doctor in the House: Protecting Your Bones As You Age

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. As children, we often hear all sorts of advice on how to strengthen our bones from drinking more milk to doing more exercises. But what if you missed that window in your youth? Are you at higher risk of osteoporosis as you age? Consultant urologist Dr George Lee is joined by consultant geriatrician Dr Terence Ong from University Malay Medical Centre to discuss the burden of osteoporosis in our ageing population and what we can still do to strengthen our bones in our golden years.
