BACKGROUND Exercise has been shown to maintain or increase bone mineral density (BMD) in non-CF populations. OBJECTIVES The purpose of our study was to elucidate the relationship between exercise, body composition and dietary intake with BMD in an adult CF population with heterogeneous disease severity. DESIGN We measured spinal (L1-4) and femoral (femoral neck) BMD by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in 68 CF adults (24 female, 44 male) with a mean age 30.8(1.7) and 27.4(1.3) (range… CONTINUE READING
