Fragility fractures such as hip fractures more commonly occur with increasing age, implicate suffering and loss of function for the patient and large societal costs. Most fragility fractures occur among those without osteoporosis, although a low bone mineral density increases fracture risk. I will present results from observational studies where I use traditional and advanced epidemiological methods to explore how physical activity, diet and diabetes type 2 may influence fracture risk.
