We compared the utility of the current Romanian guidelines that recommend treatment in women with a T-score ≤−2.5 SD with a FRAX-based intervention threshold equivalent to women with a prior fragility fracture. Whereas the FRAX-based intervention threshold identified women at high fracture probability, the T-score threshold was less sensitive and decreased markedly with age.
