A preliminary cross-sectional study of 623 healthy Kuwaiti women aged 20-79 years was carried out using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) to establish reference values of bone mineral density (BMD). Measurements were taken at the lumbar spine and proximal femur. The data were compared with normative data taken from Caucasian U.S./North European women over 6 decades of age. Our results showed the expected decline in BMD with age, especially for postmenopausal women. Despite differences in… CONTINUE READING
