Abstract

Although less common than in women, osteoporosis in men is a prevalent worldwide problem with important socioeconomic implications. Our understanding of this condition in men is growing, but there remains a great deal more to be determined. Definitions for osteoporosis in men are needed. Cost-effective guidelines on who should be investigated and treated, and how, are clearly necessary. The role of bone mineral densitometry in diagnosis and treatment decisions needs to be clarified. The efficacy of drug therapies for osteoporosis in men requires greater attention. Currently, a large multicenter study is underway in the United States and should provide much needed insight into the epidemiology of osteoporosis in men.
