Osteoporosis and Men’s Health


Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become weak and are more likely to fracture or break. In young adult life, both men and women form enough new bone to replace the bone that is naturally broken down by the body (bone turnover). Osteoporosis develops when your body cannot replace bone as fast as it is broken down.

In the United States there are 2 million men with osteoporosis and 12 million who are at risk for the disease. About one in five men over age 50 will have a bone fracture that will seriously affect his quality of life, and may cause early death.
