Osteoporosis is a worldwide condition primarily affecting the elderly. Bone fragility fractures that are due to osteoporosis, such as femoral proximal fracture and vertebral fracture, are increasing in Japan. The measurement of bone turnover markers greatly helps in the diagnosis and assessment of osteoporosis. Here, we review the relationship between bone fragility fractures and bone turnover markers through recent studies, including our own.
