DEAR DOCTOR K: Do men need to worry about osteoporosis? Doesn't it affect mostly women?
DEAR READER: Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones and makes them more susceptible to breaks. You're correct that women are more likely than men to develop osteoporosis, but that doesn't mean men don't have to worry about it. In fact, about 2 million men in the United States have osteoporosis.
