Bone mass as referent for urinary hydroxyproline excretion: Age and sex-related changes in 125 normals and in primary hyperparathyroidism


Fasting urinary hydroxyproline:creatinine ratio (OHPr:Cr) and bone mineral content of the forearm (BMC) were measured in 125 normals, 67 females and 58 males, aged 20–79 years, and in 15 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. In normals, both variables were significantly correlated to age and sex. The interrelation of OHPr:Cr and BMC was studied in… (More)
