There is talk all the time about women and osteoporosis but men can also experience it.  In fact, 13 percent of white men over 50 will experience an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetimes.  They are also twice as likely as women to die in the hospital following a hip fracture.  Screening for osteoporosis is a good idea for both men and women over 50.  Call your Loveland Physician to schedule an appointment.
