AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of this study was to compare geometric indices of hip bone strength in overweight and control elderly men. METHODS & RESULTS This study included 16 overweight (Body mass index (BMI) > 25 kg/m2) elderly men (aged 65-84 years) and 38 age-matched controls (BMI < 25 kg/m2). Body composition and bone mineral density (BMD) were assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). To evaluate hip bone geometry, DXA scans were analyzed at the femoral neck, the… CONTINUE READING
