The present study was designed to investigate the differences in serum levels of sex steroids, bone metabolism, and bone mineral density (BMD) between 22 premenopausal subjects and 21 age- and body size-matched postmenopausal subjects. Dual photon absorptiometry (DPA) demonstrated total body BMD significantly decreased in postmenopausal subjects. It was also found that not only spinal BMD as assessed by DPA, but also total third lumbar BMD and third lumbar trabecular BMD as measured by… CONTINUE READING
