    Bone mineral density is an important potentially modifiable genetic predictor of osteoporotic fracture, whereas genetically influenced levels of vitamin D and calcium may not be, according to findings from a genome-wide association and Mendelian randomization study.

Clinically useful risk factors for the prediction of osteoporotic fracture risk need not be necessarily causal and have been implemented by
