Osteoporosis affects an estimated 10.2 million people over the age of 50 in the US. The condition causes bone fragility due to deterioration and loss of density, resulting in fractures for approximately half of women and a third of men. While breaking a bone might not seem like a big deal when you’re young, it can be devastating for older adults. Research suggests that after sustaining a fracture due to osteoporosis, 10% of patients suffer another fracture and 20% die within one year. Within five years, more than 30% experience an additional fracture, and mortality risk is three to four times higher than normal.[1]
