Elliott N. Schwartz, MD, CCD, CPD, presents a talk on bone health in elite athletes. Elite athletes are a younger population that are subject to a wide variety of fractures that include, but are not limited to traumatic and stress fractures. Trabecular bone score, which has been shown to be related to microarchitecture and fracture risk, has recently been used in further evaluation of bone health in these individuals.

The prevalence of both osteoporosis and chronic kidney disease increase with aging. The frequency with which they both occur in the same individual is high. How to differentiate osteoporosis from chronic kidney disease-mineral and how to treat each bone disorder is the subject of much debate. Dr. Miller, an international expert in this area, discusses his approach.
