Current Care Guideline «Osteoporoosi»1 and Summary in Finnish «Osteoporoosi»2

The updated Current Care Guideline emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis of osteoporosis, to enable both primary and secondary prevention of osteoporotic bone fractures. Changes in lifestyle should always be an important part of patient education. In addition, drug treatment should be considered for those with high risk of osteoporotic fracture. Oral bisphosphonates are the drug of choice to most patients requiring medical treatment.
