This month in Osteoporosis News Winter 2009 edition Nikki appears on the front cover and in a 2 page spread. Osteoporosis News is the magazine of the National Osteoporosis Society and is free to members.

Since appearing on Big Brother Nikki has spoken openly about her 11-year battle with anorexia, and her subsequent diagnosis with osteoporosis. Siobhan Hallmark talks to her about her past, present and future.

In most ways Nikki Grahame is like any other 27-year-old in the glare of the public eye. Pretty, bright and bubbly and devoting her time to promoting her autobiography Dying to be Thin, Nikki's busy life heads along in a whirl of TV show appearances, openings and parties.

But in other ways, life for Nikki is very different, mainly because she's living with osteoporosis and is constantly aware of the risk of fracturing bones....


Nikki Grahame in Osteoporosis News Winter 2009


Nikki has a sobering message for any young people thinking that it’s more important to be thin than healthy:

"You should think about the long-term damage that you're doing. There is a lot of pressure nowadays to be size zero, but the damage you're doing is irreparable. It really is such a huge deal."

"You can't take back what you’ve done to your bones and your internal organs; you can put weight back on but you may never reverse the damage you’ve done to your bones."
