Each point higher was associated with 0.08% greater loss of femoral neck bone mineral density
, 0.11% greater loss of total hip bone mineral density
and 0.07% greater loss of lumbar spine bone mineral density
Serum levels of IGF-1, ET-1 and cytokines and bone mineral density
were compared between the two groups using t test.
In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between the systemic bone mineral density
and ACPA and RF in patients with RA.
The research team used accepted statistical methods to single out factors linked to lower bone mineral density
. This type of analysis simultaneously considers the impact of several factors that may affect bone density.
Bone mineral density
was measured at lumbar spine by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry studies by the same technical staff using the same equipment.
Methods: The cross-sectional multicentre study was conducted at Pakistan Health Research Council centres in Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi,and comprised subjects coming for either vitamin D testing or bone mineral density
[USA], April 6 ( ANI ): Turns out that higher intake of the dairy products including milk, yogurt and cheese is associated with higher volumetric bone mineral density
and vertebral strength at the spine in men.
QCT measurements found more COPD patients with impaired bone mineral density
compared to DXA, namely, 13 (35.1%) versus 12 (32.4%) patients with osteopenia and 16 (43.2%) versus 9 (16.2%) patients with osteoporosis (p = 0.04).
The researchers drew on data from the Bone Mineral Density
in Childhood Study (BMDCS), funded by the NIH.
Those who received the nutritional supplements experienced a 4.3% average increase in bone mineral density
in the lumbar spine, a 2.2% increase in femoral neck density and a trend toward an increase in total left hip density, along with a reduction in bone turnover in comparison with the placebo group.
Miller said: "This study completes a suite of trials that show transitioning from oral bisphosphonates to denosumab provides greater increases in bone mineral density
and reduction in bone turnover markers, compared to maintaining therapy with another bisphosphonate."
Yet, although Kemmler and colleagues (9) investigated the exercise effects on fitness and bone mineral density
in early post-menopausal women, there are relatively few studies that seek to verify in this population the effect of moderate intensity resistance training.
