-The aging process, the postmenopausal state, low calcium intake, lack of physical activity, and other risk factors predispose to low bone mass. Most elderly nursing facility patients have age-related changes in bones, resulting in a lower than normal bone mass. The Osteoporosis Clinical Practice Guideline will guide the physician in the recognition, diagnosis, and management of patients with osteoporosis or patients who are at risk for osteoporosis.

The revised guideline includes information and recommendations on the many new medications and medication options since it was first published and treatment intervention reflecting new drug choices. An updated literature review includes findings of the 2002 Women's Health Initiative Investigation on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and the FDA's revised recommendations for HRT. The revised guideline also addresses osteoporosis in men, as men account for one in four cases of both osteoporosis and hip fractures.
