ChooChin /Shutterstock While women account for 80 percent of osteoporosis cases, men can get this bone disease too, especially when they’re over the age of 50. “By the age of 65, men and women have the same rate of bone loss and the same risk of breaks or fractures. Women might get it earlier because of those sharp drops in estrogen at menopause, but men catch up later,” says Jamin Brahmbhatt, MD, a urologic surgeon and co-director of the PUR Clinic at South Lake Hospital in Clermont, Florida. Your doctor can perform bone density testing to see if you’re at risk, but maintaining good calcium and vitamin D levels (both through diet and supplements) may help keep bones stronger longer. These are the silent signs of osteoporosis.
