Veganism, vegetarianism, bone mineral density, and fracture risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis (2019)
https://academic.oup.com/nutritionrevie ... /1/5146363
Twenty studies including 37 134 participants met the inclusion criteria. Compared with omnivores, vegetarians and vegans had lower BMD at the femoral neck and lumbar spine and vegans also had higher fracture rates.
Vegetarian and vegan diets should be planned to avoid negative consequences on bone health.
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
