This thread discusses the Content article: Osteoporosis screening and treatment may be cost-effective for selected older men

I am glad there is a study discussing osteoporosis in men. Considering the complications after falls in the elderly, it makes good sense to screen people at risk in both sexes.

I agree it is a good idea to screen men at risk.

Reading this study makes me wonder if there are other diseases that are gender biased, in terms of treatment and screening, that need to be assessed in all individuals, regardless of gender?
