BACKGROUND A suboptimal bone accrual in young individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) may be related to the development of a premature CF-related bone disease. Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the mainstream measure of bone health; however, the influence of body size and lean tissue mass (LTM) on bone data is poorly interpreted. METHODS Total body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurements of bone mineral content (BMC) and LTM in 53 individuals with CF (7.00-17.99years) were… CONTINUE READING
