Trans Care: Trans People and Osteoporosis

As part of the Trans Care Project, a joint initiative of the Transgender Health Program and Transcend Transgender Support & Education Society (with funding by the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition), local and international experts in transgender care worked with local members of the transgender community to create 7 sets of guidelines for health and social service providers in BC, and 17 health information booklets for transgender people and loved ones.

This consumer booklet provides some information about risks for osteoporosis for trans people as well as information about prevention and screening.

This booklet also explains and discusses: what osteoporosis is, treatment for osteoporosis, and lists local osteoporosis resources.
