IOF Risk Check

The International Osteoporosis Foundation launched a risk check that will help you determine your risks to be affected by osteoporosis, also known as the silent disease.
Considering 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures in their lifetime, do not waste anymore time and make the test!

The Risk Check is already available in 21 languages, including Dutch and French, and many more are to come.
