The management of fragility fractures includes both treatment of the diagnosed fracture and optimization of patient health to help prevent future fractures. Appropriate management includes densitometry, laboratory analysis for secondary causes of osteoporosis, and metabolic optimization to heal the current fracture with appropriate calcium, vitamin D, and a protein enriched diet. The referenced manuscript suggests bone mineral density testing to all women age 65 and older and men age 70 and older as well as appropriate levels of calcium and vitamin D to allow for fracture healing.
