Abstract

The coexistence of liver disease and osteopenic bone disease has been recognized for many years and is now the subject of increasing attention. Osteoporosis has been characterized well in patients with cholestatic liver disease, but new research suggests that osteopenia and osteoporosis may also be prevalent in patients with other chronic liver diseases. Although the precise mechanism of bone loss remains unclear, advances in treatment and prevention are bringing heightened awareness to this common problem.
