AUSTIN, Texas — In this video exclusive, Rachel Pessah-Pollack, MD, assistant clinical professor of medicine, endocrinology, diabetes and bone disease at Mount Sinai, and Daniel L. Hurley, MD, an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic, discuss a session they both chaired on hot topics in bone disease.

Topics included in the session touched on the nutritional impact on bone health, brittle bones in diabetes, the use of anabolic agents and breaking news in osteoporosis.

Hurley and Pessah-Pollack noted that the importance of screening bone mineral density was met with high enthusiasm and that results of the screening should be used to identify patients at risk for future fractures.
