Osteoporosis threatens the quality of life of millions of people worldwide. It is a disease that affects approximately 75 Million people in the USA, Europe and Japan combined. In Australia it is estimated that around 5 million people over the age of 50 have osteoporosis or poor bone health.
Early assessment and ongoing monitoring are key to better patient management, resulting in improved morbidity and reduced mortality.
Osteoporosis takes a huge personal and economic toll. In some countries the disability due to osteoporosis is greater than that caused by cancers. It is comparable or greater than that lost to a variety of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and high blood pressure related heart disease*
Since the clinical outcome of osteoporosis is bone fracture, attention is now increasingly focused on the identification of patients at high risk of fracture rather than the identification of people with osteoporosis*
