Racial/ethnic differences were observed in age at peak bone density and their correlates, with whites peaking at least 5 years earlier at the femoral neck than black and Hispanic women. Race-specific standards generated in this study could be useful when interpreting bone densitometry data in young women. The influence of race/ethnicity on bone measurements has not been widely examined. This study identifies age and amount of bone accumulated at peak density and their correlates by race… CONTINUE READING
