Abstract

Both stroke and osteoporosis are prevalent conditions among the elderly. With increasing life expectancy across the world, despite better preventative measures, the incidence of both conditions is set to rise in the ageing populations. Alongside with sharing several common risk factors, the current evidence suggests that these conditions are risk factors for each other albeit more clear support for the effects of stroke on bone health. In this article, we present aetiopathophysiology of these two conditions and the current evidence of impact on each other particularly the impact of stroke on bone health. We also provide suggestions for improving bone health in people living with stroke based on the currently available evidence.
