Abstract Current guidelines from the Swiss Association against Osteoporosis (SVGO) dating from 2015 recommend therapy for men and women at increased fracture risk, specifically those with a vertebral or hip fracture; those with bone mineral density T-score <−2.5 at spine or hip; and those with a high 10-year probability of a major osteoporotic fracture as calculated by using FRAX. However no specific treatment recommendations have been made so far in our country to guide therapy according to the baseline level of risk. We now define four risk subgroup categories (imminent and very high, high, moderate, low) and propose an algorithm for osteoporosis therapy according to the level of fracture risk.
