OBJECTIVE We examined the relationship between self-reported calcium (Ca) intake and bone mineral content (BMC) in children and adolescents. We hypothesized that an expression of Ca adjusted for energy intake (EI), i.e., Ca density, would be a better predictor of BMC than unadjusted Ca because of underreporting of EI. METHODS Data were obtained on dietary intakes (repeated 24-hour recalls) and BMC (by DEXA) in a cross-section of 227 children aged 8 to 17 years. Bivariate and multivariate… CONTINUE READING
