WATCH: Local doctor says bone density matters for women and men

Changes in bone density affect both men and women as they age. Dr. Muna Jneidi, who practices Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine with Kettering Health, explains why it happens and what the risks are in the video above.

Men often don’t realize they are subject to bone issues.

“The mortality in hip fractures is actually higher in men than women,” Jneidi said. “If men have osteoporosis, it is at an older age, so they have more issues.”
