The word osteoporosis means porous bones. Steroid-induced osteoporosis is osteoporosis, arising due to use of glucocorticoids, involving mainly the axial skeleton. The synthetic glucocorticoid drug, prednisone is the main cause after prolonged intake. The use of thiazide diuretics, and gonadal hormone replacement has also been recommended, with the use of calcitonin, bisphosphonates and sodium fluoride.
