MADRID, DECEMBER 27 (EUROPA PRESS) –

Only 30% of Spanish women believe that osteoporosis is a health problem, an Amgen survey concluded.

In the survey, 700 Spanish women aged 55 to 65, it seems that more than half of the respondents know that they know the definition and symptoms of osteoporosis, but most do not know the extent of gravity.

Currently, the wrist fractures, ankles and hip fractures are common. However, this is the most serious rule related to osteoporosis, which is the percentage of hip fractures over 50 years. In addition, the mortality rate is 25% next year. In women, there is a higher risk of cancer than in uterine, breast and ovarian cancer combined.
