While the diagnosis and management of primary osteoporosis have been established and widely utilized, these for glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (GIOP), i.e. a representative of secondary osteoporosis, are on their way. GIOP caused fractures at a higher bone mineral density (BMD) compared to primary osteoporosis. The cut off value of the BMD for prediction of fractures was around 80% of the young adult means (T-score; -1.5). As this value would give a useful diagnostic point for initiating… CONTINUE READING
