Osteoporosis

  • Osteoporosis is a loss of bone density sufficient to cause an increased risk of fracture.

  • The WHO Working Group defines Osteoporosis according to measurements of bone mineral density (BMD)

  • Osteoporosis is defined as a bone density T score at or below 2.5 SDs below normal peak values for young adults


Osteoporosis3 l.jpg

Osteoporosis

  • normal BMD: T-score of -1 SD or above

  • osteopenia: T-score of between -1 and -2.5 SD

  • osteoporosis: T-score of -2.5 SD or below

  • established (severe) osteoporosis: T-score of -2.5 SD or below with one or more associated fractures

Osteoporosis

  • NICE Guidance refers to Primary Prevention as: osteoporosis confirmed with no # yet

  • NICE Guidance refers to Secondary Prevention as: osteoporosis confirmed & previous #


Risk factors for osteoporosis l.jpg

Risk Factors for Osteoporosis

  • Independent clinical risk factors for fracture:

  • Parental history of hip fracture

  • Alcohol intake of 4 or more units a day

  • Prior fracture

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

  • Indicators of low BMD:

  • Low body mass index (BMI) (<22kg/m2)

  • Medical conditions e.g. ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, RA

  • Conditions that result in prolonged immobility

  • Untreated premature menopause


Primary prevention nice guidance 2008 l.jpg

Primary Prevention NICE Guidance (2008)

  • Post-menopausal women who have osteoporosis confirmed (T-Score >-2.5)

  • Diagnosis may be assumed without DEXA if > 75 years

  • Assumes Vit D & Calcium levels normal (if not supplement)


Primary prevention 1 alendronate l.jpg

Primary Prevention1- Alendronate

  • Over 70 years who have an independent # risk factor (parental hip #, RA, >4 units alcohol/day) OR an indicator of low BMD (low BMI, Ank Spond, Crohns, prolonged immobility, untreated menopause)

  • Over 75 and have 2 independent # risk factors OR indicators of low BMI

  • 65-69 AND independent # risk factor

  • Postmenopausal under 65 AND independent # risk factor AND indicator of low BMD


Primary prevention 2 risedronate etidronate l.jpg

Primary Prevention2- Risedronate & Etidronate

  • Intolerant of Alendronate

  • EXCEPT - If 65-69 with no independent # risk factor or indicators of low BMD


Primary prevention 3 strontium l.jpg

Primary Prevention3 - Strontium

  • Intolerant of Alendronate, Risedronate & Etidronate

  • EXCEPT - If 65-69 with no independent # risk factor or indicator of low BMD


Secondary prevention nice guidance 2008 l.jpg

Secondary Prevention NICE Guidance (2008)

  • Alendronate

  • Risedronate & Etidronate – EXCEPT 50-54 with no independent # risk factors or indicator for low BMD

  • Strontium – EXCEPT 50-54 with no independent # risk factors or indicator for low BMD
