A free online quiz has been developed for people to assess their risk of developing brittle bones. The questionnaire has been developed by the World Health Organisation and scientists at Sheffield University.
The Frax Osteoporosis Risk Tool is aimed at 40-90 year olds and uses 12 factors including age, diet, and alcohol intake, to calculate the likelihood of fractures.
Users can then view guidance from the National Osteoporosis Guildline Group to determine their risk category.
