Fracture Risk Assessment

Posted by jenniferhope58 @jenniferhope58, Feb 14 9:12am

According to new guidelines in Canada, if your fracture risk is less than 15% there is no need to go on medication. If you are moderate risk, 15 to 20% medication may be required upon consultation with your doctor. Above 20% medication is required. When I was diagnosed, my fracture risk was 14% and I was offered Actonel which I did not go on (I was a little concerned about the risk). I'm relieved that after a year my fracture risk reduced to 11% by starting resistance exercise and taking low-dose strontium, vitamin D, vitamin K, and melatonin.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Osteoporosis & Bone Health Support Group.

I only did it for about a month, and then I found that I could do more on my own at the gym. But it was a very good introduction and there are is lot of good information about her program on the web. And the exercises that I continue to do are squats, deadlifts, shoulder lifts and one leg sit to stand. I've also started tai chi and do a type of salsa line dance class. ❤️


For anyone interested, I found the online link to Onero but I can't post it b/c I'm still too new to this forum.
