You can use the Garvan Fracture Risk Calculator if you are aged 50 years or more to calculate your individual risk of having an osteoporotic (or fragility) fracture. The calculator was developed by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney using data collected in the internationally renowned Dubbo Osteoporotic Epidemiology Study. Following years of extensive analyses and consideration of more than 50 risk factors, Garvan scientists found that 5 factors markedly affected fracture outcome. These risk factors were used to develop and validate this risk model. The results produced by the calculator should serve as a guide only. If you are concerned about your fracture risk it is important to consult your doctor or a bone specialist.
