Potential determinants of bone mineral density (BMD) were studied cross-sectionally in 115 healthy, sexually mature Caucasian women aged 18 years. Bone mineral density (Hologic QDR1000W) of the lumbar spine, proximal femur (five sites), and distal tibia and fibula; fasting blood and urine calcium biochemistry; serum sex hormone levels (follicular phase); nutrient intakes; aerobic fitness; trunk muscle strength; and habitual activity levels were measured. The effects of heredity were considered… CONTINUE READING
