    Low trauma fractures are the cardinal manifestation of osteoporosis. Their occurrence supersedes bone mineral density in deciding whether specific therapy is warranted. We therefore disagree with the notion that a densitometric threshold for treatment should be applied to patients over age 50...

However, monitoring of pharmacological therapy in osteoporosis is also challenging like all chronic diseases. The...
