Osteoporosis is a osteoid-metabolic disorder that affects many people with high prevalence in postmenopausal women. It is a disease that has a great impact on quality of life, due to high risk of fractures and a public health problem by raising health costs, mainly because it is still undiagnosed and undertreated, despite the current recommendations to routinely investigate women over 65 years of modern therapeutic modalities. In this chapter we will review ways of diagnosing and treatining postmenopausal osteoporosis.
