Abstract

This study focuses on the effect of osteoporosis therapy in elderly. It was a randomized cohort study performed in Isfahan Osteoporosis Diagnosis Center from early 2012 to mid-2015. Data were taken from 350 of the lumbar spine and hip of the referred osteoporotic patients before the start of treatment. Osteoporotic patients who had a bone mineral density (BMD) scan met the inclusion criteria. The appropriate routine treatment was prescribed by their physicians. The second measurements were taken a year later to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. The measurements were taken using a DXA scanner. This study found that more than 85% of the patients who followed the prescribed treatment had a BMD gain in both measured sites of hip and spine.
