UNLABELLED In a population-based, cross-sectional study, we related age-associated changes in vBMD and in bone structural parameters to circulating bioavailable estradiol and testosterone levels in men. Associations between these bone mass/structural parameters and sex steroid levels were progressively stronger with age. Our previously postulated "threshold" for skeletal estrogen deficiency was most evident at cortical sites. INTRODUCTION Serum sex steroids, particularly estrogen levels, are… CONTINUE READING
