Effect of co-morbidities on fracture risk: Findings from the Global Longitudinal Study of Osteoporosis in Women (GLOW)
Dennison EM et al. – Co–morbidities, as captured in a co–morbidity index, contributed significantly to fracture risk in this study population. Parkinson's disease carried a particularly high risk of fracture; and increasing co–morbidity index was associated with increasing fracture risk. Addition of co–morbidity index to FRAX risk factors improved fracture prediction.
