1st of May 2014: the Irish Osteoporosis Society is offering a new service.

Osteoporosis is a condition that effects so many of our home care clients. In Ireland 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over 50 will experience a bone fracture due to osteoporosis.

According to the Irish Osteoporosis Society anyone who breaks a bone from a trip and fall or less: even if it was on cement or ice should be screened for Osteoporosis. It is a lot cheaper to have a DXA scan to see if you have undiagnosed, than wait to see if you break more bones.

Now the Irish Osteoporosis Society is offering a new service. You can contact them to book an appointment in their offices at 114 Pembroke Road, Garden Level, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 on 01 637 5050 or 1890 252 751.

You will need to fill in a risk factor questionnaire which they will send to you once you contact them.

You will need to get a (preferably colour) copy of your entire DXA report, which should be 3 to 4 pages, with images on it.

The cost of the service is €25 for an Irish Osteoporosis Society member and €60 for a non member. All funds will go towards the Charities day to day services.
