When we evaluate patients for osteoporosis, we perform certain laboratory tests to determine if a person has another reason - other than, for example, post-menopausal and age-related bone loss - that may be contributing to their weakness of the skeleton. Prior to even considering medical therapy, once we have a diagnosis, we're sure there are no other reasons for osteoporosis, we then consider different therapies that are available to not only stabilize bone, but also to potentially increase the bone density in individuals, as well as decreasing future fracture risk. Other than fractures, osteoporosis has no symptoms - it's a silent disease. So you don't feel osteoporosis until you fracture. I see patients in follow-up after they have fractured. And one of the important aspects of that is to assist patients to get back on their feet - to try to regain their lifestyle that they had before. Their ability to enjoy life, that's very important to me. And it makes me feel good when I work with my patients, and I see them return to a full and more complete life after sustaining a fracture.Read more
