As a nurse diagnosed with severe osteoporosis more than 10 years ago, I found your comprehensive coverage of this diagnosis most helpful ("Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis in Postmenopausal Women," August).

In spite of having a very well-known and knowledgeable endocrinologist caring for me, somehow many of the particulars of living with osteoporosis remained unclear. The thorough discussions of the pathophysiology of bone loss and of pharmacotherapy were immensely helpful.
