What You Should Know About Reducing Osteoporosis Fracture Risk
TheFemalePatient.2012;37(1):47-50.

Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder in which bone strength has weakened to the point where risk of fracture is high. Women undergo a rapid bone loss around the time of menopause due to hormonal changes. This bone loss slows down during the postmenopausal years, but does not stop completely. One in two women over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in her lifetime.
