A recent study confirms that patients with multiple sclerosis have an increased risk of fractures and broken bones. Researchers analyzed hospital records and death certificates using an English national linked Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) database covering the population of England of about 50 million people during the years 1999-2010.
In this English study, patients with MS had an overall 99% increased risk of fracture
as compared to the reference group (Ramagopalan, 2012). This exceeds
the results of previously published studies which investigated the risk
of fracture in patients with MS.
