The aim of this study was to explore the relation between birth weight and bone mass in a group of adolescent girls. This study included 40 post-menarchal adolescent (aged 13–20 years) girls. Anthropometric characteristics (height and weight) were measured and birth weights were obtained from the obstetric records. Body composition, bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD) of the whole body (WB) were assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Calculations of the ratio… CONTINUE READING
