Articles Per Year

I’m always amazed by how much more information there is about a disorder than doctors will talk about or know about. There are thousands of interesting studies published about osteoporosis every year. There are more studies almost every year. In 2012, there were 3,354 articles listed on PubMed that included the term osteoporosis. There are 59,283 articles in total as of today.

Very few of these studies make the news. Most of the studies that make the news are  reported because they were surprising in some way. Many treatments are just not on the radar. It’s only when you start searching do you see how much evidence there is for different treatments. Many of the studies are on vitamins, supplements, or dietary modifications that are easy to implement.
