ABSTRACT
Zusammenfassung  Die Osteoporose wird heute zu den 10 wichtigsten Volkskrankheiten gezählt und verursacht allein in Deutschland Kosten in Milliardenhöhe. In den letzten 15 Jahren haben Fortschritte in der Diagnostik und in der Entwicklung neuer Medikamente dazu geführt, dass die Osteoporose als ernst zu nehmende, aber vermeidbare bzw. behandelbare Volkskrankheit wahrgenommen wird. Trotz dieser enormen Fortschritte ist die Osteoporose aber immer noch in Europa und insbesondere in Deutschland eine unterdiagnostizierte und untertherapierte Krankheit. So werden in Deutschland nur etwa 10–15% der Patienten mit manifester Osteoporose sowohl im ambulanten wie im stationären Bereich leitliniengerecht behandelt. In Ergänzung zu den nationalen Leitlinien liegt jetzt ein europäisches Positionspapier zu Diagnostik und Management der Osteoporose in Neuauflage vor, das den behandelnden Ärzten weitere Sicherheit und Informationen zur Behandlung von Osteoporosepatienten gibt.
