The National Women’s Health Network believes women have a right to know the potential benefits and risks of osteoporosis treatment, so we took a firsthand look at the evidence. We’ve compiled a quick fact sheet about the drug so you can get the unbiased truth.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes your bones to lose tissue and become weak and fragile, potentially leading to bone fractures. Prevention and treatment methods can help inhibit fractures and decrease the severity of osteoporosis.
The NWHN acknowledges the overbearing influence pharmaceutical companies have on doctors and patients. This issue arises for those diagnosed with high bone fracture risk. Women are specifically targeted since they’re five times more likely to be diagnosed than men.
