Glucocorticoids are the most common cause of drug-related osteoporosis. We reviewed current evidence on risk factors for glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (GIOP) and prevention and treatment of GIOP-related fractures. Guidelines for GIOP management published since 2000 were also reviewed. Significant bone loss and increased fracture risk is seen with daily prednisone doses as low as 5 mg. Alternate-day glucocorticoid therapy can lead to similar bone loss. No conclusive evidence exists for a… Expand
