Solidify your knowledge of osteoporosis and osteopenia in this discussion with Endocrinologists and osteoporosis guideline authors, Dr. Rachel Pessah-Pollack, and Dr. Dan Hurley from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE). Learn when to start therapy after an acute hip fracture, how to use bone turnover markers to assess fracture risk, more on how to dose calcium and vitamin D, and finally, we discuss the new American College of Physicians (ACP) guidelines and how they differ from the AACE guidelines on osteoporosis.
