Gwyneth Paltrow:  I'm Suffering from Brittle Bone Disease

With her extreme diets and harsh exercise regimes, Gwyneth Paltrow is nothing if not health conscious.

So it must have come as a shock to be told she is suffering from an ailment more commonly the preserve of elderly women.

The 37-year-old actress says she is in the early stages of osteopenia, precursor to the brittle-bone disease osteoporosis.

The problem was diagnosed in a bone scan after she suffered a leg fracture. In her internet newsletter Goop, she said: ‘My doctors tested my vitamin D levels, which turned out to be the lowest thing they had ever seen (not a good thing).’

“The good news about osteoporosis is that it is very treatable,” Sally claims. “But it is silent and you don’t know it is there unless you are really getting bone density tests and you have either someone looking out for you, like a really good doctor, or you know enough to look out for yourself”.

– Sally Field

The good news is this scourge largely can be prevented if low bone density is detected and treated early – as with BDI’s unique technology-enabled service.
