If you are 40-50 years old and have many risk factors, or if you are 50 or older, or if you've had a hysterectomy, it is important to talk with your doctor about your risk of having osteoporosis. There are many factors that will determine if you will develop osteoporosis. Review the list of risk factors with your doctor and find out if taking Fosteum PLUS is right for you.
