Patients with high caffeine intake may be at increased risk for bone loss
When cutting back on daily caffeine consumption by eliminating
certain beverages, it's important to replace the caffeinated drinks with
water or other non-caffeinated beverages, as drinking less fluid overall
can also lead to dehydration and bone loss.
The following steps can help decrease the impact of caffeine.
Limit caffeine intake to 300 milligrams or less per day.
Eat a diet rich in calcium - aim for 1,200 milligrams per day - from sources such as low fat dairy
foods, dark green leafy vegetables, dry beans, tofu made with calcium and canned fish with
edible bones. Adequate dietary calcium can counteract much of the negative effects of higher
caffeine consumption.
Add low-fat milk to regular coffee drinks or mix decaffeinated coffee with regular coffee.
Replace some caffeinated drinks with water throughout the day.
