Anthea Turner health: Who Dares Wins star was left ‘shocked’ after scan revealed condition
ANTHEA TURNER, 59, is all set to take on the grueling SAS experience tonight in Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins. Anthea’s decision to take part in the show is made more impressive in light of the fact that she was diagnosed with a bone condition a couple of years back.
Anthea Turner is a seasoned TV presenter, having cut her teeth on widely respected shows such as Top of the Pops and Blue Peter in the early 90s. The TV host is back on our TV screens tonight in the celebrity edition of SAS: Who Dares Wins. The show plunges contests into the harsh world of SAS recruitment, testing their mettle in a series of hostile environments.
Anthea’s decision to join the celebrity version of the show is particularly admirable in light of her health condition.
Writing in the Daily Mail last year, she revealed: “I was shocked when a scan revealed I had osteopenia.”
Osteopenia is the stage before osteoporosis, a health condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break.
According to the NHS, osteopenia is when a bone density scan shows you have lower bone density than the average for your age, but not low enough to be classed as osteoporosis.
Women are far more likely to have low bone density than men, but it’s no longer viewed as solely a women’s condition, says Harvard Health.
It is important to note that osteopenia does not always lead to osteoporosis.
As the NHS explains, whether it will progress to osteoporosis is dependent on many factors
For example, there are a number of lifestyle factors that can raise your risk of developing the condition.
This means that there are steps you can take to keep your bones healthy and reduce your risk of developing osteoporosis.
Anthea revealed she regularly takes vitamin D supplements to keep on top of her condition.
How does taking vitamin D supplements to help?
Vitamin D is important for healthy bones and teeth because it helps your body absorb calcium.
It is also important to avoid or quit smoking to prevent osteoporosis.
The Royal Osteoporosis Society explained: “Smoking slows down the cells that build bone in your body.”
Also, if you’re a woman, smoking increases your chances of earlier menopause.
As the health site points out, postmenopausal women have an increased risk of osteoporosis and breaking a bone.
