There are several risk factors for osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures including age, sex, fragility fracture after the age of 40, use of glucocorticoid drugs, medications, medical conditions that inhibit absorption of nutrients, in addition to conditions that contribute to bone loss such as diabetes.

Osteoporosis that results from having another disease or condition or from the treatment of another condition is called secondary osteoporosis.
