Osteoporosis in men
Around a third of osteoporotic fractures occur in men. Generally, hip fractures are associated with high rates of morbidity, disability, and mortality. Mortality in men after hip fracture is about double that in women. Although men do not have a rapid loss of bone density as seen in women after the menopause, both sexes lose bone density after the age of 65 years.
