About this book

This book provides a practical overview of osteoporosis for the wide spectrum of clinicians that might encounter the osteoporotic patient. Concise and well-structured chapters examine the public health importance of the condition, the current treatment gap, how to identify individuals who would benefit from treatment, bone turnover and how this can be modified by osteoporosis therapies, adjuvant lifestyle modification, the calcium and vitamin D story, antiresorptive therapies, anabolic therapies, emerging therapies, adherence and compliance with therapy and the perception of fracture risk.

 

Osteoporosis Treatment: A Clinical Overview meets the need for a book that improves awareness of this major public health problem and possible therapeutic approaches. Primary care physicians, endocrinologists, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons and those providing specialist care for the elderly will all benefit from this highly accessible and informative guide to treating osteoporosis.
