Abstract

Corticosteroids are the principal cause of secondary osteoporosis due to drug treatment. Doses of more than 5 mg daily and periods of treatment lasting more than 3 months increase the risk of osteoporosis and fragility fractures. It is therefore essential to be aware of measures to reduce the risk of osteoporosis in our patients.
