  • Half of women over 50 in the US will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture in her lifetime(8)

  • The impact of breaking a bone is significant and often leads to a downward spiral for the patient
    • A woman who has broken a bone as a result of osteoporosis has more than an 8 out of 10 greater chance of breaking another bone(10)
    • One in four women who have broken a bone will fracture again within a year(11)
    • Half of the women who break a hip will permanently need assistance to walk(12)
    • Nearly one in four women who have broken a hip will die within one year(13)
  • By 2025, the annual direct costs of treating osteoporosis fractures in the US are estimated at $25 billion(14)

  • With menopause, bone loss occurs faster than new bone can form as a result of lower levels of estrogen, leading to osteoporosis.(15) In fact, women can lose up to 20 percent of their bone density in the five to seven years after menopause begins.(16) This decreased bone mineral density weakens the bone and puts women at higher risk for fractures or broken bones.(17)

    About the Know My Bones Council

    Guided by the belief that the path to optimal bone health can be found through educating and empowering women to more actively manage their disease, six leading women's advocacy groups have joined forces to create the Know My Bones Council. The Council, formed in 2009 with sponsorship and participation from Amgen, unified with the goal of encouraging women living with PMO to prioritize their bone health and to seek information that will empower them to fight the disease.
