More acidic dietary acid-base load is associated with reduced calcaneal broadband ultrasound attenuation in women but not in men: results from the EPIC-Norfolk cohort study.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Dietary patterns that promote mild metabolic acidosis may have a negative effect on bone density. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the relation between a measure of dietary acid-base load, potential renal acid load (PRAL), and calcaneal broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) after adjustment for confounders and also compared the results with different estimates of acid-base load. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was conducted in 14 563 men and women aged 42-82 y living in Norfolk, United...
