Dr. Alan Low BSC (Pharm), PharmD, ACPR, FCSHP, CCD, RPh Pharmacist : Osteoporosis Guidelines and Treatment Options
Osteoporosis actually occurs when your bones are weak and you have a higher risk of fracture.
This is a higher risk of fracture usually due to some cause such as thinning bones, which might be genetic, or it could be due to certain medications.
The risk of fracture can be broken down into low, moderate, or high risk. Low risk is considered that risk that’s less than 10 percent; moderate risk is between 10 and 20 percent. And those who have a high risk of above 20 are considered high risk of fracture, and should consider treatment.

In fact, 95 percent of the population has been exposed to chicken pox and already has the virus inside of them. It’s not just after having chicken pox that it occurs, it’s usually many years later.
