May is National Osteoporosis Month

You value your health—in fact, you take great measures to keep your muscles strong, your heart pumping, and your other organs functioning. But how much care do you take with the bones in your body? The human skeleton is made up of 206 bones. If you don’t care for them properly, you could develop conditions such as osteoporosis.

Risk Factors for Osteoporosis

The risk of developing osteoporosis is high. One in four men and one in two women who are more than 50 years old will break a bone because of this condition. Some factors that lead to osteoporosis include:

•    Age. Anyone 50 or older is at higher risk for bone density loss. However, any person of any age can show symptoms.

•    Body size. Individuals with lower body weight or who have too small a body size are more likely to develop osteoporosis.

•    Family history. If anyone else in your family has suffered from osteoporosis, you are also at risk for displaying symptoms as you age.

•    Gender. Women are more at risk than men for developing osteoporosis. In fact, 80% of women develop osteoporosis, while only 20% of men manifest symptoms. Additionally, menopausal women have a higher chance of experiencing this condition.

Medication Refills

  1. When you need to refill your medication:
  2. Contact your pharmacy to request a refill on your medication
  3. If you have additional refills authorized, the pharmacist will refill your medication
  4. If no refills are authorized, your pharmacist will contact your provider for approval

Please allow 3 days to allow for processing a refill request.
