The effect of the serum lipid levels on vertebral fractures and bone mineral density is not clear. A total of 107 postmenopausal women aged 45–79 examined by lumbar spine, hip and radius bone mineral density (BMD) measurements, lateral dorsal and lumbar spine radiographies, routine blood tests and serum lipids [total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), HDL-C, LDL-C, VLDL-C]. Demographic and lifestyle characteristics were collected. Eighty-nine radiographies with good technical properties were… CONTINUE READING
