Several prospective studies have shown that the bone mineral density (BMD) measured in the appendicular or axial skeleton has an inverse relationship with the risk of subsequent fractures. However, most of these studies have concentrated on relatively old age groups, and the usefulness of measuring BMD at the time of menopause has not been established. In the present study, BMD was measured at the lumbar spine and femoral neck by dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in a random stratified population… CONTINUE READING
