Osteoporosis Risk Calculator

Approximately 50% of women over the age of 50 develop osteoporosis and are at risk of an osteoporosis-related fracture. Yet relatively few have been diagnosed or treated. That's why it's important to find out your risk for developing osteoporosis so that you can take the necessary steps to help secure your healthy future.
