  • Overview

    Anyone in medicine will freely admit that osteoporosis is a major health threat in the United States, and yet the majority of patients with osteoporosis remain undiagnosed and untreated. In fact, fewer than one-third of cases have even been diagnosed, and only 14% of women with osteoporosis receive treatment. This comes in stark contrast to the fact that more than 50% of women over age 50 will encounter an osteoporosis-related fracture. So what can the healthcare community do in the face of those odds? Addressing this issue is Dr. Michael Lewiecki, Osteoporosis Director at the New Mexico Clinical Research and Osteoporosis Center. He's also Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Dr. Matt Birnholz hosts.
