Survey: What do you know about your bones?
Menopause Matters has previously run questionnaires on aspects of the menopause and has examined how well informed health professionals and the public are on issues affected by menopause. Topics have included sexual health, heart health, bladder and bowel health. These findings have been published and presented nationally and internationally and have influenced clinical practice as well as empowering women to make changes and seek professional help.
The Silent Disease
Bone health is another important aspect, which is affected by menopause. Osteoporosis (fragile bones) and osteoporotic fractures affect many women, with 1 in 2 women now expected to suffer from an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetime. It is hoped that this questionnaire will shed some light on current awareness, and will lead to an increased understanding of the problem, and of preventive measures that can be taken.
