See Osteoporosis. The term osteopenia has been depreciated recently by the ISCD relative to "Low Bone Mass" in perhaps an attempt to remove disease implications. However the term will not go away as it summarises a potentially treatable disease as treating 15 postmenopausal women with a low bone mass defined as T scores between -1.0 to -2.5 with zoledronate infusions for 6 years prevents a fracture in 1.[1]
