In brief: In rheum. arthritis?

Osteoporosis is a known complication of rheumatoid arthritis (ra).
The bone loss is related to features of the patient (usually a postmenopausal woman), corticosteroid therapy, and the underlying arthritis disease. May have a beneficial effect on bone loss through the medication's strong anti-inflammatory effect.
