Osteoporosis: An Evidence-based Guide to Prevention and Management
Steven R. Cummings, Felicia Cosman, Sophie A. Jamal
ACP Press, 2002 - Medical - 290 pages
Until recently considered an inevitable part of aging, osteoporosis is typically diagnosed only after a serious complication such as a fracture. It is now possible, however, to diagnose high-risk patients beforehand. Osteoporosis: An Evidence-Based Guide to Prevention and Management, the newest volume in the acclaimed ACP Women's Health series, addresses every important facet of this common disease. The latest scientific evidence and the extensive clinical experience of the authors provide essential information on the origins and progress of osteoporosis. Treatment options are thoroughly reviewed. The busy primary care physician will appreciate an entire selection of clinical cases. Commonly seen presentations are analyzed in depth with regard to risk, management, and therapy. Osteoporosis has been endorsed by the American Geriatrics Society and the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research
