Synopsis: 
Use of simple serum based tests to classify healthy individuals from patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is gaining interest. It seems that the “Osteo-Pars” equation has reasonable benefit in discriminating healthy individuals from osteopenia/osteoporosis patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The occurrence of osteopenia and osteoporosis is a major problem of ageing. For assessing the severity of bone loss, bone mineral density (BMD) measurement is the gold standard. Because of the limitations of BMD, use of simpler serum-based tests to classify osteoporosis/osteopenia patients is gaining interest. In this preliminary work, we aimed to discriminate between healthy individuals and osteoporosis/osteopenia patients through a simple serum-based equation.
