Effects of long-term sedentary behaviour on the cortical bone mass and distribution during growth: The HAPPY bone study

Duckham Rachel L , Rantalainen Timo , Rodda Christine , Timperio Anna , Hawley Nicola , Hesketh Kylie

Introduction: Whilst it is well-established that sedentary behaviour may increase the risk of paediatric obesity, and potentially result in early onset cardio-metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, there is less consensus about the potential detrimental effects that long-term sedentary behaviour may have on bone health during childhood.Purpose: To determine if long-term sedentary behaviour affects accrual of bone mass, str...

Objective: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is associated with lower bone mass in children. Physical activity and nutrition influence bone pathophysiology, and differences in these lifestyle factors are observed between children with vs. without ASD; however, whether these factors contribute to bone differences is unknown. We examined if: 1) differences existed in bone mineral density (BMD), content (BMC), or bone geometry in boys with vs without ASD and 2) whether physical acti...
