Osteoporosis: Treat and live, or let die twice more likely.

Abstract

Patients with fractures have reduced life expectancy (1-3). This is easily understood when death occurs following a hip fracture in an elderly frail individual (4). However, reduced life expectancy is also independently associated with vertebral or forearm fractures (5), rapid bone loss alone (6), and low bone mineral density alone (7).
