“My top tip is to start and don’t stop. It’s overwhelming getting a diagnosis of Osteoporosis. It’s overwhelming and people start thinking, ‘This is it. There’s nothing I can do.’ But 95% of fractures happen when somebody falls. So it’s not just about the physiology of bones, it’s about what else you can do in your life.”
