May is National Osteoporosis Awareness & Prevention Month

Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones.  It happens when you lose to much bone, make too much bone, or both.  As a result, bones become weak & can break from a fall or, from a simple action, like sneezing.

About 10 million Americans have osteoporosis. Estimates suggest that half of all women older than 50, and up to 1 in 4 men, will break a bone because of osteoporosis. 

Osteoporosis is often called the "silent disease"; because you could have it or be at risk without even knowing it.  I encourage you to talk to your healthcare provider about the disease!
