CONTEXT Higher dietary net acid loads have been associated with increased bone resorption, reduced bone mineral density (BMD), and increased fracture risk. OBJECTIVE The objective was to compare bicarbonate (HCO3) measured in arterialized venous blood samples to skeletal outcomes. DESIGN Arterialized venous samples collected from participants in the Health, Aging and Body Composition (Health ABC) Study were compared to BMD and rate of bone loss. SETTING The setting was a community-based… CONTINUE READING
