Osteoporosis is a chronic condition that causes bone fragility fractures and is a major public health issue worldwide [1]. According to the Scorecard for Osteoporosis in Europe (SCORE), the prevalence and burden of osteoporosis are expected to rise over the next 10 years, primarily as a result of population aging. According to the estimates, more than 30 million people in Europe and a comparable number of individuals in the United States suffer with osteoporosis [2]. The availability of the standard dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), which has been adopted in the majority of western countries but is still underutilized in many other developing countries is strictly correlated with the prevalence of osteoporosis [3]. Osteoporosis is a societal burden brought on by both individual and environmental factors.
