What have we learned from CaMos? Issue No. 5 | 2000-12-01

We know that 16% of women and 5% of men over the age of 50 have osteoporosis as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO). This is somewhat less than what was previously thought but lest we get too comfortable, we found that more than 60% of women and 40% of men over the age of 50 are at increased risk to fracture. The prevalence of vertebral deformity or spine fracture in Canadian women and men over the age of 50 is 25%. The most recent data suggests that approximately 3% of Canadians over the age of 25 sustain a fragility (low trauma) fracture each year with the overwhelming
majority of serious fractures such as hip occurring in those over age 50 years. This translates to more than 750,000 fragility fractures per year.
