Osteoporosis is a silent chronic disease. The human, medical and economic impacts, as well as the easy access to the screening and specific treatments incite us to introduce a treatment as soon as this one is justified. The maximal efficiency of treatments is possible only if the therapeutic adherence (which includes compliance and persistence) is good. Regrettably, as frequently in the chronic diseases, this one is often bad. It can be strengthened by a better patient's education and information, a better follow-up, but also by a today available variety of treatments.
