Management of corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis.

02:45 EDT 7th July 2015 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Management of corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis."

Treatment with corticosteroids can adversely affect bone metabolism. In particular, it lowers bone mineral density (BMD) and increases the likelihood of fragility fractures, the hallmarks of osteoporosis, hence the term 'corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis'.1 Since corticosteroids are used for a wide variety of inflammatory conditions, corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis represents a substantial disease burden. Here we aim to provide advice on prophylaxis and treatment for osteoporosis in adults receiving corticosteroid therapy.
