Lumbar spine peak bone mass and bone turnover in men and women: a longitudinal study


Peak bone mass is an important determinant of bone mass in later life, but the age of peak bone mass is still unclear. We found that bone size and density increase and bone turnover decreases until age 25. It may be possible to influence bone accrual into the third decade. Peak bone mass is a major determinant of bone mass in later life. Bone growth and… (More)
