Is lung function associated with bone mineral density? Results from the Hertfordshire Cohort Study.
UNLABELLED: Given limited information available regarding associations between lung function and bone mineral density among healthy subjects, we undertook these analyses in the Hertfordshire Cohort Study. Forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV(1)), forced vital capacity (FVC) and FEV(1)/FVC were not associated with bone mineral density at any site; associations with bone mineral content were removed by adjustment for body size. PURPOSE: There is limited information available regarding the assoc...Expand abstract
