Osteoporosis Recs Urge Screening for More Women [cached]

Also in an e-mail, Murray Favus, MD, director of the bone program at the University of Chicago, said that the lack of a plan for assessing fracture risk in men is a major problem with the guidelines.

"It is time to recognize that men will continue to be neglected until reimbursement for bone-density scans is in place," he wrote, "and a first step is inclusion of management of men in the guideline."

In an accompanying editorial in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Murray J. Favus, MD, of the University of Chicago noted that the US saw a 17% increase in the lifetime prevalence of kidney stones among women between 1976-80 and 1988-94-coinciding with the widespread adoption of calcium supplements to prevent osteoporosis.

On the other hand, dietary calcium has actually been shown to fight stone formation. Women in the study with the highest dietary intake of calcium were 65% less prone to kidney stones than those with the lowest calcium consumption from the diet.
Dr. Favus advised, "Optimal calcium intake can be achieved while minimizing kidney stone risk by the use of dietary calcium sources and the avoidance of calcium supplements."
