Understanding Risks

It is impossible to predict who will get osteoporosis. However, there are several factors that can put certain men at increased risk. These include:

  • Age
  • Low testosterone levels
  • Family history of osteoporosis
  • Thin and/or small frame
  • Use of certain medications such as corticosteroids, anticonvulsants and anti-rejection drugs
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Lack of weight-bearing exercise

If you have any of these risk factors you may want to find out more about osteoporosis prevention from your physician or from other providers of information on osteoporosis.1
