Health Advice from Doctor Moms



Alexandra Page, M.D., Orthopaedic Surgeon with Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, California

I keep my kids healthy by...
making sure my teenaged son and daughter drink skim milk at breakfast and dinner. Teen girls especially need calcium because they build peak bone mass by age 20.

When I need to de-stress...
I do Sudoku.

Best thing moms can do for themselves:
Pay attention to bone health by getting a daily dose of 600 IUs of vitamin D and 1000mg of calcium—1,200mg if you're postmenopausal.

The #1 question I get from patients:
Is it broken or fractured? They're the same thing.
