Nutritional Considerations in Osteoporosis

1:00 – 1:45pm   Managing Frailty and Sarcopenia in Patients with Osteoporosis  Ginnie Prater, MD, Assistant Professor, UAB Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care

Nutrition needs can be variable for the older adult population due to effects of normal aging. Additionally, some patients present with pathology that augments these effects. Dr. Prater uses clinical cases to address the multifactorial needs of older adults with sarcopenia and frailty.

1:45 – 2:30pm – All Foods Can Fit For Patients With Comorbidities 
Beth Kitchin, PhD, RDN, Patient Educator, UAB Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment Clinic

Older patients rarely present at the outpatient clinic with one disease or condition. As patient educators, we must recognize that patients who come to us for lifestyle and medication counseling often have real and perceived competing issues. Dr. Kitchin discusses how to help patients develop a nutrition care plan for bone health that works for patients with lactose intolerance, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.

2:30 – 3:00pm Nutrition Recommendations for Patients with Bone Density Lowering Conditions    

Sarah L. Morgan, MD, RD, Director, UAB Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment Clinic

Patients with metabolic bone diseases often have nutritional disorders that explain the cause of the metabolic bone disease, such as celiac sprue and hypercalciuria.  IN addition, existing nutritional disorders such as the presence of a bariatric surgical procedure also have effects on the management of the metabolic bone disease.

2:45 – 3:15pm Break – Bone Boosting Snacks

3:15 – 4:00pm  Exercise Recommendations for Patients with Osteoporosis
Sherri R. Betz, PT, DPT, GCS, PMA®-CPT, Chair, Bone Health Special Interest Group of the American Physical Therapy Association/Academy of Geriatric PT

Learn the latest research recommendations for the most effective exercises for osteoporosis as well as the contraindicated exercises and movements for fragile bones.  What sports are good for bones and which ones have a detrimental effect on bones? Get answers to the difficult questions patients often ask. Use an evidence-based approach to help patients decide what type and intensity of exercise to choose.

4:00 – 5:00pm Demonstration of healthy bone cooking by New Orleans Chef

Description:  The rapid aging of the US population combined with improvements in modern medicine has created a new public health concern of comorbidity, a chronic condition that co-exists with a primary illness. Over 141 million Americans suffer from one or more comorbid conditions. These comorbidities can vary from diabetes and osteoporosis, immune disorders and osteoporosis, kidney disease and osteoporosis and the like. These comorbidities, have been associated with greater health resource utilization, poor health outcomes, and increased mortality. To minimize the negative impact that these comorbidities have on patient outcomes, appropriate attention should be paid to identifying, prioritizing, and managing each condition; minimizing medication complexity and polypharmacy; and improving overall coordination of care between providers and patients.
