Why is Osteoporosis important?

Can osteoporosis be fatal?

  • Fractures are the only sign of osteoporosis.
  • The importance of osteoporosis is precisely because of the fractures that occur easily and with the least pressure in the osteoporotic bones.
  • Aging is associated with an increased risk of decreased bone density.
  • Fifty percent of women over the age of sixty-five and twenty percent of men over the age of sixty-five suffer from osteoporotic fractures.
  • These people suffer fractures in the wrists, vertebrae, pelvis, femoral head, etc. with a simple fall.
  • Age conditions and underlying diseases in people of this age increase the risk of site infection.
  • Pelvic fractures lead to the elderly being unable to move before doing their daily activities, the person lays in bed, the risk of infections increases, and the risk of pulmonary embolism is higher in these people.
  • Unfortunately, lung infections and emboli can be associated with the death of loved ones.
  • Unfortunately, about 30 percent (one third) of people who suffer from pelvic fractures following osteoporosis die within the next year due to fracture complications.
  • One-third survives but can no longer continue their daily lives as before.
  • One-third can continue their normal lives.
