There is still a care gap in osteoporosis management for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Although compliance with current osteoporosis guidelines remains low among all patients with rheumatoid arthritis, higher risk patients were more likely to have a bone mineral density test and receive treatment for osteoporosis. PubMed, Joint Bone Spine, 2014 Apr 2. (Also see: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoporosis)
