Peak bone mass and quantitative ultrasound bone properties in young adulthood: a study in the PEAK-25 cohort

Sandstrom Linnea , McGuigan Fiona , Callreus Mattias , Akesson Kristina

Peak bone mass, typically reached in the third decade, is the highest bone mass acquired after completion of normal growth. Attaining a higher young adult bone mass may contribute to a lower risk of fragility fractures later in life. Few studies have specifically investigated quantitative ultrasound (QUS) in relation to peak bone mass in young adult women. The study objectives were to describe normative QUS values for 25 year old women and how extremes of body weight relate to...
