Osteoporosis → Hip & other fractures

The most prevalent bone disease in humans:

43.3% of adults 50+ yrs old have low bone mass (osteopenia) – a precursor of osteoporosis

26.3% of adults 50+ yrs old have osteoporosis


Most prevalent in Asians, Hispanics & White non-Hispanics

While African Americans have the lowest prevalence of osteoporosis, some studies show they have the highest osteoporosis severity.  For example, African American women who sustain an osteoporotic fracture have one-third higher mortality than white women.
