Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, osteoporosis-related fractures represent a major disease burden in the elderly, particularly postmenopausal women and their families, as well as a significant financial burden for individuals and health care providers, including Governments and insurance companies, estimated at billions of dollars a year in Australia and other developed countries. There is good evidence that postmenopausal bone loss can be largely prevented or delayed by life-style measures such as increased calcium intake and exercise, and that very significant fracture prevention can result from treatment with calcium and vitamin D. The purpose of this special issue is to report progress in nutritional strategies for preventing osteoporosis by publishing the proceedings of a Workshop on Prevention of Osteoporosis held in Adelaide, South Australia on 5 and 6 March 2010. Discussion centred on the merit of providing bone densitometry for all women at menopause to identify those with low-normal bone density – who are at significantly greater risk of osteoporosis and fracture than those with high-normal values – and offering them nutritional and other life-style advice to prevent bone loss. There was significant support for this proposal which is being submitted to the Australian health authorities.
