 Seventy-four postmenopausal women with nonpathological hip fracture were recruited to a study in which they were compared for lifetime factors, some biochemical measurements of bone metabolism, and bone mineral density (BMD), with 40 age-adjusted controls without fracture. The fracture patients were less independent; their walking ability was weaker; their vision was poorer; they had more general diseases (strokes, diabetes, malignant diseases, heart and vascular diseases); more of them had… CONTINUE READING
