Men… Don’t Think Osteoporosis Can Affect You? Think again!

Osteoporosis is not just a woman’s disease. One in five men over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis and 1/3 of all hip fractures worldwide occur in men.

October 20 was World Osteoporosis Day and marked the launch of “Real Men Build their Strength from Within,” a new year-long campaign to raise awareness for the impact of osteoporosis on men. With one in five men age 50 and older affected by osteoporosis, the data confirm that osteoporosis remains a vastly underestimated and neglected health issue, especially among men.
