Amsterdam, June 19, 2013 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today the publication of the National Osteoporosis Guideline Group (NOGG) Update 2013 on diagnosis and management of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and older men in the journal Maturitas.
Published in 2009 in Maturitas, the original guidelines have been highly cited and this update is timely with an additional focus on the management of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis, the role of calcium and vitamin D therapy and the benefits and risks of long-term bisphosphonate therapy. In all these areas, there have been new developments over the past few years that have had an impact on clinical practice and require modifications and/or additions to previous guidance.
The recommendations in the guidelines are intended to aid management decisions but do not replace the need for clinical judgement in the care of individuals in clinical practice.
