Abstract
Osteoporosis is a major health problem, especially in elderly populations, and is associated with fragility fractures mostly in hip and spine. These fractures have high costs consist of hospitalization, outpatient hospital, physician services, prescriptions (not available for those in long-term nursing or hospice) and labs and radiology so that direct financial expenditures for the management of osteoporotic fractures are estimated to be $10-15 billion annually and can be risen as $3 to7 billion in one year without considering inflammation in each country.

vitamin D levels was related to higher pulmonary
artery pressure, particularly in hemodialysis and predialysis
