For women with osteoporosis after menopause at high risk for fracture

Fracture RISK DISCUSSION GUIDE

Use these answers to start a conversation with your doctor

Q: How old are you?
A: 71 and older

What this can mean: Approximately 1 in 2 women over the age of 50 will break a bone in their remaining lifetime because of osteoporosis. A woman can lose up to 20% of her bone density during the 5 to 7 years following menopause. When you lose bone quickly, you have a greater chance of developing osteoporosis.

Q: How recent was your last fracture?
A: I don't know

What this can mean: You may want to talk to your doctor to find out. After an osteoporotic fracture, you are 5 times more likely to suffer another fracture within 1 year. If your fracture was more than a year ago, you could still be at risk. In fact, your increased risk continues for at least 5 years post-fracture.

Q: Where was your last fracture?
A: Other (e.g., wrist or shoulder)

What this can mean: No fracture should be ignored. If you aren't treating your osteoporosis, you could be at risk for breaking another bone in a different part of your body. In fact, a previous wrist fracture can increase your risk of a spinal fracture by 37%. If you are 60 years old, immediately after a shoulder fracture, your risk of a spine fracture can increase by up to 10 times.

Q: How are you reducing your risk of fracture?
A: I'm currently not doing any of the above

What this can mean: If you've suffered an osteoporotic fracture, it's important to take action and talk to your doctor. Otherwise, your bone can continue to weaken and could break from a minor event, like a fall from a standing height.

Q: Select the range that best represents your DXA scan T-score.
A: I don't know

What this can mean: A DXA (pronounced dexa) scan is important in helping your doctor assess your bone mineral density and fracture risk. If you haven't had a DXA scan yet, ask your doctor if you should have one. If you have had a DXA scan but don't know your T-score, talk to your doctor.

Knowing if you're at risk for a future fracture is important. Print out your answers and share them with your doctor at your next appointment. While you're talking with your doctor, here are some questions to see if EVENITY™ is the right bone-building treatment for you. 

  • Am I currently at high risk of fracturing another bone?
  • Do I need a treatment that can rapidly build new bone and decrease spine fracture risk in 12 months?
  • What treatment would be right for me?
