This analysis compares femur neck bone mineral density (FNBMD) and bone determinants in adults between National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) III (1988–1994) and NHANES 2005–2008. FNBMD was higher in NHANES 2005–2008 than in NHANES III, but between-survey differences varied by age, sex, and race/ethnicity. The likelihood that FNBMD has improved appears strongest for older white women. Recent data on hip fracture incidence and femur neck osteoporosis suggest that the skeletal… CONTINUE READING
