NAGELBERG, Alberto et al. Evaluation of bone health in transgender people. Position of the Argentine Osteoporosis Society. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2024, vol.84, n.1, pp.125-137. ISSN 0025-7680.

The Argentine Osteoporosis Society convened renowned specialists in the care of transgender people to prepare the first local position on the evaluation of bone health in this population. Law 26.743 on “Gender Identity” recognize all identities and guarantees free care throughout the health system. The impact of different gender affirmation treatments on bone mass has been topic of international debate. To date the evidence remains limited and different societies have issued suggestions and recommendations. For this reason, we believe it is relevant to mention our experience, capturing through this document a series of suggestions to be used in medical care.

Keywords : Osteoporosis; Trans men; Trans women; Bone mass.
