Helping women thrive through osteoporosis
About 200 million women worldwide suffer from osteoporosis1
Worldwide, 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 will suffer from at least one osteoporotic fracture.1
Sadly, many women with postmenopausal osteoporosis go through life undiagnosed and untreated. This is due to a lack of knowledge and lack of dialogue with their healthcare professionals, and limited access to diagnosis and treatment before their first fracture.2
About a third of post-menopausal women are having to live with osteoporosis3
Like many post-menopausal women, Stephanie had no idea she had the condition until she broke her arm and was recommended to have a bone scan by her healthcare professional. After her initial surprise at diagnosis, she decided to seek treatment and now carries on doing the things she loves.
