Many nutritional causes of osteoporosis have been suggested, but the one that has been and that is still most debated is the possible role of a low calcium intake. In our analysis of published papers we have found convincing evidence, mostly from several clinical trials completed in the last few years, that an increase in the current Nordic calcium recommendations for post-menopausal women should led to decreased bone loss among these women in the future, although the effect is probably modest. We therefore recommend a calcium intake level amove 1,200 mg/day for women over the age of 50 years. We have also found compelling evidence of a need for vitamin D supplementation among elderly individuals not regularly spending time out of doors. Further research in the area of diet and osteoporosis is strongly needed.
