  • World Osteoporosis Day (20 October)

    ICN raises awareness on osteoporosis, a non-communicable disease in which weakened bones lose density and strength, causing them to break more easily.  Osteoporosis may be caused by ageing and/or of a number of conditions including hyperthyroidism, kidney disease, alcoholism or anorexia.

    Osteoporosis can lead to an increase in nursing home admittance due to serious injuries that impair independence, and an increased rate of mortality, representing an increased burden for healthcare systems.  ICN reminds all that prevention through screening is crucial to avoid complications.
