Osteoporosis in men

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Osteoporosis is increasingly being recognised in men. In the next 20 years it is likely to emerge as an important public health problem both in the West and in the developing worlds, as numbers of elderly men increase and the age-specific incidence of hip fractures in men also increases. It is projected that over the next 15 years, approximately 30% of hip fractures will occur in men.
