CONTEXT Parent hip fracture prevalence is a known risk factor for osteoporosis. The role of hip fracture prevalence in grandparents on areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and bone size in their grandsons remains unknown. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to examine whether hip fracture prevalence in grandparents was associated with lower aBMD and reduced cortical bone size in their grandsons. DESIGN AND SETTING This was a population-based cohort study in Sweden. STUDY SUBJECTS… CONTINUE READING
