Different Indices of Fetal Growth Predict Bone Size and Volumetric Density at 4 Years Old.

Abstract:

Abstract We have previously demonstrated that higher birth-weight is associated with greater peak and later life bone mineral, and that maternal body build, diet and lifestyle influence prenatal bone mineral accrual. To examine further prenatal influences on bone health we related ultrasound measures of fetal growth to childhood bone size and density. We derived Z-scores for fetal femur length and abdominal circumference and conditional growth velocity from 19-34 weeks gestation from ultrasou...
