Osteoporosis has traditionally been considered a disorder of postmenopausal women, but low bone mass and accelerated bone loss can also occur early in life causing premenopausal osteoporosis.

Lifestyle modification is of importance in preventing progressive bone loss in premenopausal women and should be actively encouraged.
