Summary  This research demonstrated that lower health literacy is associated with poorer uptake of lifestyle-specific osteoporosis prevention recommendations in women. In particular, health literacy skills associated with finding, understanding and using health information in managing health were of greatest importance. These results have implications for the communication of osteoporosis prevention messages.
