Abstract

Osteoporosis is a major health care problem of the developed countries. During the last decades, female osteoporosis has been in the center of interest. However, it had to be realized that a significant number of men suffer in this disorder. Beside patient's history and physical examination, bone densitometry, X-ray and biochemical tests are the basis of the diagnosis. Bone densitometry provides accurate information on bone quantity but it does not identify the causes of a potential reduction in bone mineral content. X-ray and laboratory examinations are absolutely essential for differential diagnosis. In the treatment of involutional osteoporosis, a number of effective drugs are available. Their effects on bone tissue have been proven by the methods of evidence-based medicine. In this review, the recent developments in the diagnosis and therapy of osteoporosis have been summarized.
