The aim of this consensus group report is to provide guidance to clinicians on how to use BTMs in patient evaluation in postmenopausal osteoporosis, in fracture risk prediction and in the monitoring of treatment efficacy and adherence to osteoporosis medication.

The consequence of T2DM on OA outcomes is a question of research interest. Methods We conducted a critical review of the literatu...
