My mother has osteoporosis. She is desperate because she heard that many people with osteoporosis can have hip fractures. Her best friend, who also osteoporosis, had a hip fracture and now my mother is worried. Tell me, please, can hip fracture occur due to osteoporosis? Does she need to worry? Thanks!

I’m sorry that I need to say to you that people with osteoporosis are at much greater risk for developing a hip fracture from accidents such as falls. Because they have thinner and weaker bones then people without osteoporosis. So, she has a reason to worry and she needs to be extremely careful.
