Osteoporosis is a major public health problem in Western countries and is projected to have a similar impact in the Middle East. It has been suggested that peak bone mineral density (BMD), a major determinant of osteoporotic fractures later in life, may be lower in this part of the world compared with the Western world. However, subjects have not been randomly selected or systematically screened to rule out secondary causes of bone loss. The purpose of this study was to determine peak bone mass… CONTINUE READING
