Global aging has made osteoporosis an increasingly serious public health problem. Osteoporotic fractures seriously affect the quality of life of patients and increase disability and mortality rates. Early diagnosis is important for timely intervention. The continuous development of individual- and multi-omics methods is helpful for the exploration and discovery of biomarkers for the diagnosis of osteoporosis. In this review, we first introduce the epidemiological status of osteoporosis and then describe the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. Furthermore, the latest progress in individual- and multi-omics technologies for exploring biomarkers for osteoporosis diagnosis is summarized. Moreover, we clarify the advantages and disadvantages of the application of osteoporosis biomarkers obtained using the omics method. Finally, we put forward valuable views on the future research direction of diagnostic biomarkers of osteoporosis. Omics methods undoubtedly provide greatly contribute to the exploration of diagnostic biomarkers of osteoporosis; however, in the future, the clinical validity and clinical utility of the obtained potential biomarkers should be thoroughly examined. In addition, the improvement and optimization of the detection methods for different types of biomarkers and standardization of the detection process guarantee the reliability and accuracy of the detection results.
