Age (50 years), sex (female), and race (white or asian) the us preventive services task force (uspstf) recommendations include screening for osteoporosis in women aged 65 years or older and in younger women with a fracture risk that is the same or greater than that of a 65-year-old white woman who has no additional risk factors. Osteoporosis elderly woman with (30-40-year-old more than 250,000 hip fractures annually are attributable to osteoporosis a 50-year-old white woman is. In 2003, the average additional life span for a 75-year-old in the us was 118 years and for an 85-year-old was 68 years106 data for most osteoporosis therapies show significant decreases in vertebral fracture rates as early as 6 months to 1 year93,107,108 unless there is a comorbid condition that is expected to significantly reduce life.
By age 80, 70 percent of women have osteoporosis, according to a cleveland clinic foundation article published in the 2002 clinics in geriatric medicine the risk of osteoporosis also rises in elderly men, although a higher percentage of women still develop osteoporosis. Population women age ≥65 years without previous known fractures or secondary causes of osteoporosis women age years whose 10-year fracture risk is equal to or greater than that of a 65-year-old white woman without additional risk factors. What women need to know a t-score compares bone density to what is normal in a healthy 30-year-old adult treating osteoporosis in young women. Women younger than 65 years should be screened for osteoporosis if the estimated 10-year fracture risk equals or exceeds that of a 65-year-old white woman with no risk factors b 1 , 5.
Osteoporosis, a chronic, progressive disease of multifactorial etiology (see etiology), is the most common metabolic bone disease in the united states it has been most frequently recognized in elderly white women, although it does occur in both sexes, all races, and all age groups. It's true that white women seem more likely than others to get osteoporosis, but the condition does not discriminate: men and women of all ethnic groups can get it women may lose bone faster in. A 50 year old white woman has a 16% lifetime risk of experiencing a vertebral fracture and 5% in white men  a woman 65 years of age with one vertebral fracture has a one in four chance of another fracture over 5 years, which can be reduced to one in eight by treatment [43.
A 50 year old white woman has a 16% lifetime risk of experiencing a vertebral fracture and 5% in white men vertebral fractures are associated with an increased risk of both further vertebral and nonvertebral fractures [ 8 , 19 , 40 - 42 . On june 26, the us preventive services task force posted a final recommendation statement and final evidence summary on screening for osteoporosis to prevent fractures in various patient. Yielded 17% prevalence of osteoporosis @ femoral neck among women 50 years or older fracture for 50 yo white women in us 84 year old female. The incidence of osteoporotic fractures increases from 206 and 94 per 10,000 individuals for white women and men aged 65-69 years old, respectively, to 180 and 92 per 10,000 for white women.
In the absence of other risk factors, it is not until age 80 years that the prevalence of osteoporosis in white men starts to reach that of white women at age 65 years 1 for example, in the united states, the 10-year frax risk of mof is 50% 8 in a 65-year-old white man of mean height and weight 7 without any risk factors, and 84% 8 at age 80. One in four mexican-american women and about one in six white women over 50 years old have osteoporosis 6 asian-american women also have a higher risk for osteoporosis because they are usually smaller and thinner than other women and therefore may have less bone density. Introduction osteoporosis leads to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures the world health organization (who) considers osteoporosis a critical health problem 1 and a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the aging population 2,3 men and women with osteoporosis experience hip fractures at a similar rate, 4 but men experience a worse 1-year mortality 5,6 evidence indicates. The t score represents the comparison of the subject's bone mass to that of a healthy 30-year-old a t score result of minus one to minus 2 1/2 indicates osteopenia, while lower than minus 2 1/2 indicates osteoporosis, reports webmd.
Everyday life of an 84 year old thin, small boned white female is considered based on her early years one example of a musculoskeletal disorder is osteoporosis osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become weak and are more likely to break, due to bone tissues thinning. Women are at 40% risk of developing osteoporosis men are at 13% 1/2 white woman will experience osteoporosis related fracture prevalence of osteoporosis (age 50-54) still low at menopause 80+ - 52% of population of osteoporosis are common. A 50-year-old white woman has lifetime risks of fracture of the spine, hip, and distal radius of 32 percent, 16 percent, and 15 percent, respectively these risks exceed her risk of developing. Osteoporosis is diagnosed when the bone mineral density is less than or equal to 25 standard deviations below that of a young (30-40-year-old:58), healthy adult women reference population this is translated as a t-score.
For example, only when men reach age 80 years does the prevalence of osteoporosis in white men reach the rate in white women at age 65 it's the under-65-year-old woman you're going to want to. In a study comparing a population similar to ours (all white women aged 45 to 64 years old with a mean age of 56 years) with women ≥65 years old, the authors also found that to achieve the same sensitivity (approximately 90%) for osteoporosis detection, the threshold scores to screen with the ost, orai, and score all needed to be liberalized. In women aged 65 years or older and in younger women whose fracture risk is equal to or greater than that of a 65-year-old white woman who has no additional risk factors, the uspstf judged that the benefit of treating screening-detected osteoporosis is at least moderate. 20-29-year-old non-hispanic white women + the prevalence of reduced femur bone density (osteopenia and osteoporosis) in older us adults by sex is shown in.
