Two major factors that affect your chance of getting osteoporosis are:
- The amount of bone you have when you reach menopause…
- How fast you lose bone after you reach menopause. For some women, bone loss happens faster than for others. In fact, a woman can lose up to 20% of her bone density during the five – seven years following menopause. If you lose bone quickly, you have a greater chance of developing osteoporosis”.
