dc.description.abstractOsteoporosis is the commonest bone disorder affecting humans and it can lead to fractures in critical areas such as the proximal femur. These fractures can have a significant impact on the morbidity and mortality of the patient. Calcium and vitamin D have an important role in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Identifying and correcting a low calcium intake and vitamin D insufficiency is an essential step in the management of osteoporosis. Failure to do so can seriously compromise fracture risk reduction.en_GB
