At enrollment, the population of ISSO study mostly consisted in aging women, who had osteoporosis with high fracture risk, poor HRQoL and suffered from significant back pain. Most of them had already been treated by bisphosphonates but without calcium and vitamin D supplements. Back pain, as well as non-vertebral and multiple vertebral fractures, were associated with lower HRQoL.

Abstract

At enrollment, the population of ISSO study mostly consisted in aging women, who had osteoporosis with high fracture risk, poor HRQoL and suffered from significant back pain. Most of them had already been treated by bisphosphonates but without calcium and vitamin D supplements. Back pain, as well as non-vertebral and multiple vertebral fractures, were associated with lower HRQoL.
