The American Bone Health Fracture Risk Calculator™
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.
Note: We have recently expanded the explanations for the items in Question 13 to make them more understandable.
