WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS?

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, which can lead to increased risk of fracture. Known as the “silent thief”, bone deterioration can occur over a number of years without presenting any symptoms.

Unfortunately, if detected at the time of a break, the disease is already fairly advanced. The most common fractures associated with osteoporosis are in the hip, spine, wrist, and shoulder. Today, no single cause for osteoporosis has been identified.

IMPACT

People living with osteoporosis face a reduced quality of life, lowered self-esteem, reduction or loss of mobility, disfigurement, a lack of independence and in some cases, death.

28% of women and 37% of men who suffer a hip fracture will die within the following year.

For many Canadians, osteoporosis means they can’t live they life they want to – and we’re working to change that.

Donate

Osteoporosis Canada, a registered charity, is the only national organization serving people who have, or are at risk for, osteoporosis. We work to educate, empower and support individuals and communities in the risk-reduction and treatment of osteoporosis. But we can’t do it alone.
