OSTEOPOROSIS can lead to painful fractures, disability and early death, but continues to be ignored by the general public and neglected by doctors during routine physical check-ups New survey findings released yesterday, which was World Osteoporosis Day, by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), show that on average, 90 per cent of 13,258 adults questioned are unaware of how common osteoporotic fractures are in men. With one in five men aged 50 or over affected by the condition, the data confirm that although common, serious and potentially life-threatening, osteoporosis remains a vastly underestimated and neglected health issue. The multi-national survey, carried out in adults from 12 countries showed that this ignorance was universal and independent of gender or geography.
