Facts and advice to help people understand and prevent osteoporosis

There are an estimated 55 million Americans over the age of 50 who have low bone mass. This easy-to-understand guide helps readers assess their risk and find a practical approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of osteoporosis. It covers bone density tests and a wide range of treatment options for osteoporosis-from hormone replacement therapy and acupuncture to calcium-rich foods, supplements, and exercise-and offers pointers on preventing broken hips and other common fractures.

Carolyn Riester O'Connor, MD, is certified in bone densitometry and is a fellow of the American College of Rheumatology. Sharon Perkins, RN, is the coauthor of Breastfeeding For Dummies and Fertility For Dummies.
