Coeliac Ali Walsh looks into preventing the condition that aff ects those with lower bone mineral density….


Ali pounds the streets on her way to better bone health

My dietitian told me to consume 00mg of calcium a day (well over the recommended daily amount). At first, I tried eating it, but that proved rather di̇ cult ± it felt like I was forever forcing down a pint of milk. In the end I bought myself some chunky tablets ± a chalky sort that seemed to double in size in my mouth ± and hoped that would do the trick. I was also advised to do weight-bearing exercise. To this, I was a bit of a swotty student. I bought every fitness video going and trained as an aerobics instructor.
