Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by the progressive loss of bone density and thinning of bone tissue. This chronic, degenerative disease is a major public health threat for an estimated 44 million U.S. women and men aged 50 and older. Children and young adults are able to increase bone density with exercise and proper nutrition, and building stronger bones can help to prevent or delay osteoporosis later in life.
This study is being conducted to help determine if ibuprofen hinders improvements to bone mineral density that normally occur as a result of weight-bearing exercise.
We are currently looking for non-smoking women aged 21-40 who are not exercising regularly, but would like to be.
