Risk factors for hip fracture in white women. Study of Osteoporotic Fractures Research Group.
TLDR
Women with multiple risk factors and low bone density have an especially high risk of hip fracture and maintaining body weight, walking for exercise, avoiding long-acting benzodiazepines, minimizing caffeine intake, and treating impaired visual function are among the steps that may decrease the risk. Expand
Comparison of 2 frailty indexes for prediction of falls, disability, fractures, and death in older women.
TLDR
The simple SOF index predicts risk of falls, disability, fracture, and death as well as the more complex CHS index and may provide a useful definition of frailty to identify older women at risk of adverse health outcomes in clinical practice. Expand
BMD at Multiple Sites and Risk of Fracture of Multiple Types: Long‐Term Results From the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures
TLDR
Almost all fracture types to be related to low BMD are found, and the overall proportion of fractures attributable toLow BMD is modest. Expand
Factors associated with the lumbar spine and proximal femur bone mineral density in older men
TLDR
A number of lifestyle and behavioral characteristics and medical conditions were associated with BMD in older men, which could improve methods to identify men at risk for fracture and improve the understanding of fracture etiology. Expand
Poor sleep is associated with impaired cognitive function in older women: the study of osteoporotic fractures.
TLDR
Objectively measured disturbed sleep was consistently related to poorer cognition, whereas total sleep time was not, which may suggest that it is disturbance of sleep rather than quantity that affects cognition. Expand
Frailty and risk of falls, fracture, and mortality in older women: the study of osteoporotic fractures.
TLDR
Frailty is an independent predictor of adverse health outcomes in older women, including very elderly women and older obese women. Expand
Use of antidepressants and rates of hip bone loss in older women: the study of osteoporotic fractures.
TLDR
Use of SSRIs but not TCAs is associated with an increased rate of bone loss at the hip in this cohort of older women. Expand
The Association of Radiographically Detected Vertebral Fractures with Back Pain and Function: A Prospective Study
TLDR
This study examined the effect of incident vertebral fractures on back pain and back-related functional limitations in a large community-based sample of elderly women who underwent serial spinal radiography and annual assessments of backPain and disability over the same period. Expand
Vision Impairment and Combined Vision and Hearing Impairment Predict Cognitive and Functional Decline in Older Women
TLDR
To determine the association between vision and hearing impairment and subsequent cognitive and functional decline in community‐residing older women, a large sample of women aged 60 and over is studied. Expand
