Plasma total homocysteine level and bone mineral density: the Hordaland Homocysteine Study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) has been associated with hip fracture but not directly with bone mineral density (BMD). We examined the association of hip BMD with levels of plasma tHcy, folate, and vitamin B12 and the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) 677C-->T and 1298A-->C polymorphisms. METHODS Bone mineral density was measured… (More)
