Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone structure that increases the risk of fractures. It happens when you lose too much bone, make too little bone or both. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a minor fall.

- Previous fragility fracture
- Recent falls
- Unsteady walking
- Balance issues
- Female over age 65
- Male over age 70
