Did you know?
The FRAX® tool is an osteoporosis risk assessment using information about your bone density and other risk factors to help healthcare providers determine your risk of breaking a hip or other major bone in the next 10 years. Your Bone Density Test (DXA scan) report may include your FRAX® score along with your bone density score to discuss with your healthcare provider to see if treatment is needed with an osteoporosis medication. If your report does not include your score, your healthcare provider can find out your FRAX® score using a web-based version.

If you are 45+, use the American Bone Health Fracture Risk Calculator™ to learn your risk level of breaking a bone in the next 10 years due to osteoporosis.
This tool is designed for use by patients, whereas the FRAX® tool is for healthcare providers. The American Bone Health Fracture Risk Calculator™ closely aligns to the FRAX® tool, with few exceptions, and results are intended for patients to include in discussions with their healthcare provider.
