This book is a quick-reference guide to osteoporosis that equips the reader with easy-to-follow guidelines for lifelong maintenance of skeletal structure and function, with an emphasis on the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of osteoporosis.

Organized into 20 chapters it provides a concise, yet complete evidence-based overview of osteoporosis prevention and management “from paediatrics to geriatrics”. This practical guide is aimed at raising awareness and educate physicians across disciplines about this preventable, treatable and now even curable disease and emphasizing how every doctor can contribute to stop the “osteoporosis treatment gap” recognized over the last ten years.

Covering bone biology, pathophysiology, secondary and drug-induced osteoporosis, as well as risk factors, diagnostic measurements, treatment and monitoring strategies, new drugs, management of osteoporotic fractures, and much more, this book is a must-have for all those involved in the prevention and care of this global threat.
