Bone mineral density in children with asthma receiving long-term treatment with inhaled budesonide.

Abstract

The aim of our study was to assess the effects of long-term treatment with inhaled budesonide (BUD) on total body bone mineral density (BMD), total body bone mineral capacity (BMC), total bone calcium (TBC), and body composition in children with asthma.
