The aim of this study was to measure bone mineral density (BMD) in healthy people and examine the influence of age, anthropometry, and postmenopause on calculated bone mineral apparent density (BMAD). The study included 541 healthy subjects (249 men and 292 women), aged 20 to 79 years. Anthropometric measurements included height, weight, and body mass index (BMI). Bone mineral content (BMC) and areal BMD were measured at the lumbar spine and proximal femur, using dual-energy X-ray… CONTINUE READING
