BackgroundWe lack consensus on the clinical value, frequency, and timing of bone mineral density (BMD) testing in kidney transplant recipients. This study sought to determine practice patterns in BMD testing across kidney transplant centres in Ontario, Canada, and to compare the frequency of testing in kidney transplant recipients to non-transplant reference groups.MethodsUsing healthcare databases from Ontario, Canada we conducted a population-based cohort study of adult kidney transplant… CONTINUE READING
