Heart Disease and Osteoporosis Risk Assessment and Reduction

Heart disease is the number one cause of death for women after age 40 in the United States. Osteoporosis is a disease that affects a woman’s bones and can lead to postural changes, weakness, pain and fractures.

Why do you do risk assessment for heart disease and osteoporosis?

Both of these diseases have a very real impact on a woman’s health and her quality of life. Heart disease can affect a woman’s health by increasing her risk of stroke or heart attack. Osteoporosis can contribute to a woman’s risk of falls, bone breaks and loss of balance and strength.
