May is National Osteoporosis Awareness Month

The National Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that 54 million Americans 50 years of age and older are affected by osteoporosis and low bone mass. Sometimes called brittle bone disease. Each year, 1 in 3 adults 65 yrs and older falls. Less than half mention these falls to their health care Providers. These falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries increasing the risk of early death.
Please check with your Health care Provider to see if you should have a Bone Density test for early detection of osteoporosis and treatment.
