Staying One Step Ahead of Osteoporosis
Date:2/26/2009

ound that women affected by rheumatoid arthritis for more than three years were osteoporotic and had a fracture risk significantly higher than those without the disease. Also, Vitamin D therapy is not enough to prevent further bone loss and fragility fractures in these patients." Men in the study faired much better. Those with rheumatoid arthritis did not have a significant risk of fracture. Risk Factors in Osteoporotic Patients Study 477 (http://www3.aaos.org/education/anmeet/anmt2009/podium/podium.cfm?Pevent=477)

Fractures, especially in adults, maybe a tip off or early warning sign, that osteoporosis could be an issue. Many of these are painful fractures of the hip, spine, wrist, arm and leg, which often occur as a result of a fall or even a simple household task. One in two women and one in five men older than 65 years old, will sustain bone fractures caused by osteoporosis.

Note: This topic will be the focus of a Media Briefing entitled: Staying One Step Ahead of Osteoporosis on Thursday, February 26, in the Sands Expo Center, Venetian Hotel, Level One, Room 904 at 10 am. Panelists include: Moderator: Kim Templeton, MD, Tad Funahashi, MD, Leonid Kandel,, MD, and Francesco Pegreffi, MD.
