The diagnosis of osteoporosis is based on low bone mineral density (BMD) and/or the occurrence of fragility fractures. The majority of patients, however, have also abnormally low bone matrix mineralization. The latter is indicative of alterations in bone turnover rates and/or in kinetics of mineral accumulation within the newly formed bone matrix. Osteoporosis therapies can alter the bone matrix mineralization according to their action on bone turnover and/or mineralization kinetics… CONTINUE READING
