Most people with osteoporosis are undiagnosed and untreated. Many of those who are diagnosed do not receive optimal treatment. The key to managing this debilitating disease is identification of those at risk, measuring bone density, and treating appropriately. Although great strides have been made in developing new treatments for osteoporosis, the entire field of osteoporosis treatment is still in its infancy. Exciting new research has the potential of offering tremendous advancements in our ability to manage this disease.
