Dr. Koval on Time Warner Cable News: Men and Osteoporosis

Nearly 1 in 4 men diagnosed with osteoporosis, yet, most do not get screened until after they suffer a fracture, found a recent report published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

Because osteoporosis is more common in women, they are more likely to be recommended for a bone density screening, explained Dr. Robert Koval, a rheumatologist at Texas Orthopedics to Time Warner Cable News. But, he says, men should also have their bone density tested before they suffer a fracture.

Learn more about why it is important for men (and not just women) to pay attention to their bone health.
