OSTEOPOROSIS: AVOID VITAMIN A and PHOSPHORUS Working closely together with calcium, phosphorus is extremely important to bone health and, although not routinely prescribed, people often self-medicate. But the balance has to be just right and supplementing the diet with it can lead to brittle bones. High levels of phosphorus in the blood (taken at levels of 1,000mg plus) can cause calcium to leave the bones, potentially exacerbating problems for those with osteoporosis, says Sylvia Turner. UK guidance for everyone is not to take supplementary phosphorus of more than 250mg a day. A number of different studies, including one at the University Hospital, Sweden, have shown that a high intake of one type of vitamin A (retinol), thought to strengthen immunity against infections, is linked to lower bone mineral density, the marker for osteoporosis. In the study of 175 women aged between 28 and 74, those whose dietary intake of vitamin A was more than 1.5 mg a day had significantly lower bone density six to 14 per cent lower than women who reported less than 0.5 mg of the vitamin in their daily diets. Indeed, for every 1 mg increase in daily intake of retinol, risk for hip fracture increased by 68 per cent.
