Osteoporosis Publication date : October 1, 2006

Osteoporosis has been described as an invisible enemy because it produces no external signs to help us detect it. Early diagnosis and prevention are thus of the utmost importance.
It is estimated that one out of three women suffers from osteoporosis at the menopause, and the incidence of osteoporosis among men is rising.
This practical book surveys current knowledge about osteoporosis and tells readers what to do to preserve their bone resources.

Patrick Gepner is a rheumatologist specialising in back problems, at Hôpital Foch, in Suresnes, near Paris.
