Osteoporosis is a major public health problem in Japan. The second decade is an important period in which to attain a high peak bone mass. However, normal values of forearm bone mineral density (BMD) are not well known in children and adolescents. BMD at one-third of forearm length proximal to the ulnar end plate (BMD1/3) and the ultradistal forearm (BMDud) was measured using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in 1207 (631 males, 576 females) Japanese subjects aged 9–18 years. Puberty onset… CONTINUE READING
