ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - If a man falls and breaks his hip he's more likely than a woman to have a major complication from it, including death or being confined to a wheelchair, according to Dr. Rick Lehman from the U.S. Center for Sports Medicine.

Osteoporosis affects up to two million aging men. But men rarely get screened for osteoporosis, which indicates that many doctors also may not be aware of its impact on men.
