What is the treatment of Osteoporosis in men?

The treatment plan for Osteoporosis in men include the nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle guidelines for preventing bone loss listed at the end of this fact sheet.

Once a man has been diagnosed with osteoporosis, his doctor may prescribe one of the medications approved by the FDA for this disease. The treatment plan will also likely include the nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle guidelines for preventing bone loss listed at the end of this fact sheet.


If bone loss is due to glucocorticoid use, the doctor may prescribe a medication approved to prevent or treat glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis, monitor bone density and testosterone levels, and suggest using the minimum effective dose of glucocorticoid.


Other possible prevention or treatment approaches include calcium and/or vitamin D supplements and regular physical activity.


If osteoporosis is the result of another condition (such as testosterone deficiency) or exposure to certain other medications, the doctor may design a treatment plan to address the underlying cause.
