Bone mineral content in women: Trends of change

  title={Bone mineral content in women: Trends of change},
  author={Henrik D{\"u}ppe and Per G{\"a}rdsell and Olof Johnell and Bo E. Nilsson},
  journal={Osteoporosis International},
Altogether 426 women had their forearm bone mineral content (BMC) measured with single photon absorptiometry (SPA): one group in the early 1970s, another about 18 years later. Both groups represented purportedly healthy subjects. A third group of 328 women, measured at the same time as the second group, was from the same population but chosen by random selection (the population-based group). In the two sets of non-population-based women there was a small percentage reduction in the cortical… CONTINUE READING
