Osteoporosis, which literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. The loss of bone occurs silently and progressively. Often there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs.
Fortunately, there are two excellent options to treat and prevent further progression of osteoporosis with the goal of fracture and pain reduction and maintenance of bone and joint function. Both of these drugs are administered by subcutaneous (SC) injection and are: 1. Prolia® and 2. Evenity®
