May is Don’t Break a Hip Month

This PR guy insists that I tell you women about this.
Osteoporosis Awareness & Prevention Month

Did you know that May is Osteoporosis Awareness & Prevention Month? You may be interested in sharing some osteoporosis-related statistics with your audience this month so they take proactive measures if they have postmenopausal osteoporosis:
According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation:

* Approximately 8 million American women have osteoporosis, a disease that causes bones such as the hip, spine and wrist to break more easily, resulting in more than 2 million fractures annually
* One in two women over the age of 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in her remaining lifetime
* An average of 24 percent of women who experience a hip fracture will die from complications within one year
* Six months after a hip fracture, only 15 percent of women can walk across a room unaided, and one in five who were able to walk on their own prior to the hip fracture will require long-term care afterwards.

He’s pushing a pill to ease your worries.

The good news is that there are treatments that can help women manage osteoporosis effectively. One such treatment is a once-yearly therapy called Reclast, which is indicated to treat postmenopausal osteoporosis. Women can go to their doctor and receive one 15-minute intravenous dose of medication a year, rather than needing to remember to take daily, weekly or monthly pills.

In the email, he sent me a link for all the precautions if you decide to take Reclast, but the link didn’t work, so you can contact him directly:
