Abstract

Osteoporosis is a serious health problem for men. An advance in our understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of this disorder has resulted in the possibility of a gender-specific approach to screening, diagnosis, and treatment. Here we review the data on osteoporosis in men, discuss controversies regarding whom to screen, whom to treat, and how to treat. Recent treatment data as they relate to men are reviewed, and a clinical treatment algorithm is presented.
