Dr. Koval on KXAN - Men and Osteoporosis

Most people think osteoporosis only strikes older women, but a new study finds men are not being screened as often as they should for this bone deteriorating disease.

It's true women are more likely to break a bone because of osteoporosis - about half will over age 50. But so will one in four men. Dr. Koval explained that prevention is key. "The earlier you catch it the better the outcome is going to be, the quicker you get treatment going you are able to save bone density and prevent fractures."
