Osteoporosis is very common, affecting approximately one in three women and one in ten men over the age of 50. Although there is no cure, lifestyle modification and drug therapy can slow or stop the progress of osteoporosis, and so there is a real need for up-to-date, appropriate information to help the primary care practitioner diagnose and manage the condition effectively, and to address patients' queries and concerns. This book, written in the popular Q and A format of the Your Questions Answered series by a renowned osteoporosis specialist, will provide the information needed by GPs and other practitioners to be able to understand and treat patients with osteoporosis. Answers are presented in a succinct, accessible style, with emphasis on evidence-based, up-to-date knowledge.
