Bulgarian League for the Prevention of Osteoporosis

BLPO Activities for 2005 and WOD 2005

In 2005, the Bulgarian League for Prevention of Osteoporosis (BLPO) made great progress with a survey conducted among 150 physicians and 300 osteoporosis patients about their therapeutic attitudes and preferences concerning osteoporosis. The survey was conducted in August and then presented at a press conference in cooperation with the Association for Clinical Densitometry and the Bulgarian Association for Menopause and Andropause. In the survey, they found that osteoporosis treatment is most often discontinued because of its high cost, and that only 20% of the patients continued with their medication after one year.
Additionally, for World Osteoporosis Day, the BLPO organized a training course for 28 members of both the print and electronic media. The sessions were successful and were made more interesting with practical exercise time. QUS measurements of the participants were made as well.
