An estimated 19% of adults aged 50 and older have an elevated risk for a hip fracture in the next 10 years, according to a report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Another 8% have an elevated risk for a fracture of the spine, forearm, hip or humerus, the authors estimate. The report details the Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) score distribution for U.S. adults aged 40 and over using 2013-2014 data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. After adjusting for age, the proportion with elevated fracture risk was two to seven times higher in women than in men.
