Abstract: In Romania about 1,3 milion women, one third of women aged over 50 years, experience problems related to osteoporosis; the World Health Organization considers osteoporosis to be a major disease of the modern era. Osteoporosis, best defined as "little bone" reach clinical attention when it is severe enough to cause microfractures and the collapsing of the vertebral bodies leading to backache or predisposition to fractures of other bone. From financial point of view, complications of osteoporosis significantly impacting both pacients and health services as well. Disability due to this major disease is comparable to that caused by myocardial infarction, it is estimated that in the near future 50% of patients with hip fracture can not walk unaided. The consequences of osteoporosis include both direct human aspects: deteriorating the quality of life, increasing the number of fragility fractures, and indirect aspects: increased financial costs to prevent, detect, diagnose and treat the disease. All these aspects make osteoporosis a major public health with a growing scale at present due to aging.
Keywords: osteoporosis, fractures, increased costs, major disease.
