Osteoporosis Risk Assessment

Osteoporosis Risk Assessment

Osteoporosis is a long-term (chronic) disease that slowly weakens bones until they
break easily. It is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. In some
cases it may also be caused by medical conditions or medicines. Millions of Americans
older than 50 have osteoporosis. Millions more have low bone mass, which puts them
at risk for the disease. Osteoporosis mainly affects women. One in 2 U.S. women and
1 in 4 U.S. men older than 50 will have a broken bone at some point in their life
because of osteoporosis. Use this tool to find out your risk of getting this disease.
