Background: Although both testosterone and estrogens are considered essential for normal bone growth, epiphyseal maturation and bone mass accrual during adolescence, only very few data concerning the changes of estrogens, bone maturation, bone mineral density (BMD) and bone geometry in healthy boys at different pubertal stages have been published.Objectives: This study aimed to analyze the relationship between sex steroids and more especially estrogens a...

Introduction: Osteopenia is a well-known complication of anorexia nervosa (AN) in older adolescents and adults, especially in those with a long duration of the disease and a severe underweight.Aim: We investigated whether young premenarchal girls with AN have similar risk factors for a disturbed bone growth and mineralization.Methods: Twenty-four female premenarchal AN patients as well as 24 age and height matched female controls u...

Objectives: Maximising peak bone mass (PBM) during growth is an essential part in the prevention of fractures and osteoporosis later in life. Two of the most important modifiable factors influencing PBM are diet and physical activity (PA). These factors can have either a direct or indirect effect on bone. For example, increasing PA would increase loads directly to the bone or cause muscle changes which would drive changes in bone. This study aimed to assess whether there was a...
