Healthy bones are the building blocks of a healthy body, which is why understanding your risk and learning what you can do to protect your bones is so important.
Women are at an especially higher risk of suffering bone loss due to osteoporosis. In fact, about half of all women older than the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist or spine during their lifetime due to osteoporosis.
Known as “the silent disease,” osteoporosis occurs slowly over many years without any symptoms until a fracture occurs.
