This week I had the opportunity to lead my graduate seminar colleagues in a discussion of Daniel Rodgers's Age of Fracture. The seminar covers 20th century U.S. It is predicted that by 2015, the incidence will have increased to 91,500 annually [4]. The incidence of osteoporotic fractures increases with age. €Given that most hip fractures occur in elderly persons, a key finding is that this recent height loss, even after adjusting for age, indicates increased risk for hip fracture.”2. Sudden spine fractures and serious bone loss can occur in young adults form the age of 19-25. Studies show that 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over the age of 50 will sustain an osteoporotic fracture. And 97% of the hip fractures in the study were due to falls. Incidence increases with age and doubles every decade after the age of 50 [3]. In women, the rise is seen after the age of 45 and is mainly due to forearm or wrist fractures up to the age of 65, after which the risk of hip fracture is higher. Women are the most at risk as they age due to hormonal changes just before menopause. The incidence of hip fractures is estimated at 70-75,000 annually in the UK. This injury is particularly difficult for those of a young age who are exposed to Nexium.
