Our Tools for Bone Health

10-Year Fracture Risk Calculator Version 2.1

The American Bone Health Fracture Risk CalculatorTM estimates fracture risk for women and men over age 45.

Certain factors can put you at risk of breaking a bone. Did your mother break her hip? Do you smoke? Have you had cancer or thyroid disease? The American Bone Health Fracture Risk Calculator asks you a set of questions to help you figure out your level of risk. Then you can talk to your doctor about the steps you should take to keep your bones strong and prevent fractures. Just complete the survey and click on “Calculate Risk” to see how likely you might be to break a bone in the next 10 years.

Upcoming Events

Dear Friends,

As the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic continues, American Bone Health has decided to take steps to protect both our Peer Educators and the people who attend their programs.

We are in the process of rescheduling community programs into May and June, with the hope that by then, that the virus will have run its course. Some programs will be rescheduled later in the year.

Our team is also able to assist in converting any in-person programs to video conference. If you would like to explore that option, please contact Ann@AmericanBoneHealth.org

In the meantime, follow us online and be well.

What to know about bone health
and fracture prevention during COVID-19

  • Remove fall dangers in your home.
  • Stay physically active, and at least 6 feet away from others.
  • Eat for proper nutrition, and take a supplement if needed to get enough calcium and vitamin D.
  • Stick with your osteoporosis medicines and ask your doctor for extra if you’re unable to go to the pharmacy.
  • If you are due for Reclast, there is little concern about delaying for a few weeks or months.
  • If you take Prolia or Evenity injections, don’t miss your appointment.  Some facilities offer “drive-through” injections. Check with your doctor.
  • Bone density testing can be postponed, if necessary.
  • Speak with your doctor about the possibility of telephone and video visits.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a page with steps you can take to reduce your risk of catching the virus if you have a chronic illness.

Be well. We are here for you if you have any questions.
