    Osteoporosis: The silent modern plaque

    Osteoporosis is a disease in which the density and quality of the bone is reduced,
    resulting in enhanced risk of bone fracture. Osteoporosis is very common
    affecting about one out of three women and one out of five men worldwide.
    The loss of bone occurs "silently" and frequently there are no symptoms until
    the first fracture occurs, e.g. in the wrist, spine or hip. Fractures can have
    serious consequences, including chronic pain, body deformity, hospitalization,
    operations and loss of independence. Thus, significantly reducing the
    individual’s quality of life and in worst cases it can result in death. Today it is
    known that death rate due to hip fracture is higher compared to breast cancer
    related mortality among women.

    Osteoporosis: High economic burden

    The total cost of osteoporosis related fracture is estimated to be 3.5% of the total
    global health care spending. While the burden of that cost originates from the
    acute management of fracture only 4.7% of the total cost is from preventive and
    primary pharmacologic treatment interventions. Within the European Union
    the economic burden of fractures has been estimated to be €36 billion annually

    Preventive and treatable measures of osteoporosis

    The good news is that osteoporosis is a treatable condition, thus, many fractures
    can be avoided. However, there is still a serious treatment gap, mostly due
    to insufficient case finding of individuals at risk of fracture, who also would
    benefits the most from primary treatment interventions. Therefore, by using
    the Expeda Osteoporosis Advisor, we do not only calculate the 10-years risk of
    fracture, but also present our customers with individualized specialist – quality
    level advice concerning prevention and medical treatment recommendations
    for osteoporosis. With the aid of our adviser the individual is in control
