What Is Osteoporosis

As previously covered, Osteoporosis is a condition where the main characteristic is weak bones. 

Key Characteristics of Osteoporosis: 

  • Low Bone Mass
  • Deterioration of Bone Tissue
  • Disruption of Bone Architecture
  • Compromised Bone Strength
  • Increased Risk of Fracture

Know Your Risk:

To better understand your risk of a hip fracture or other major osteoporotic event, calculate your FRAX® Score.  

FRAX® is a Fracture Risk Assessment Tool that uses various factors to stratify your risk for having a potentially devastating Osteoporotic Event. Once you calculate your FRAX® Score add your results to your lab tracker. We have created a digital lab tracker that is accessible in Measuring Bone Health and a Printable lab tracker that is available in the Measuring Bone Health workbook module.

Review the What is Osteoporosis workbook module to learn more about the data needed to calculate your FRAX® Score.
