The diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis in men on androgen deprivation therapy for advanced carcinoma of the prostate

, : The diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis in men on androgen deprivation therapy for advanced carcinoma of the prostate. Journal of Urology 172(6 Pt 1): 2137-2144

Purpose: Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for advanced prostate cancer increases the risk of osteoporosis. Thus, the practicing urologist should be aware of the appropriate assessment and management. In this article we review the tests designed to diagnose osteoporosis as well as treatment options. We also review methods to monitor the response to therapy and make recommendations for management.
