OSTEOPOROSIS

In a person with osteoporosis, the density, quality and strength of bone are reduced, leading to weakness of the skeleton and increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is a major health issue in New Zealand. It affects more than half of women and nearly a third of men over the age of 60 years. There are treatments available which can help strengthen the bones and reduce the risk of fracture.
