CHD linked to osteoporosis in older adults

July 2, 2015

Older adults with a history of coronary heart disease have a substantially lower cortical volumetric bone mineral density at the distal radius, putting them at risk for fracture, according to research in Osteoporosis International.

Using high-resolution peripheral quantitative CT (HR-pQCT) in a population-based study to measure bone geometry, density and microstructure in adults with and without a history of CHD, researchers also found the lower cortical volumetric BMD measurements were more prominent in women with heart disease than men.
