Adiposity, physical inactivity and sedentary behavior have become an increasing problem during the past decade and raise concerns about future health. Increased sedentary behavior may change the body composition by increasing the fat mass (FM) relative to the lean mass (LM). These changes may influence bone health. This study aimed at evaluating the influence of BMI and body fat percent (BF%) and LM on childrenÂ’s bone health represented by bone mineral content (BMC), bone...

Objectives: Bone mass development in childhood and adolescence is crucial for peak bone mass (PBM) and low PBM may lead to osteoporosis later in life. The stability of bone mineral status through childhood and adolescence is known as tracking. The objective of this study is to determine the degree of tracking according to bone mass from pre-puberty into puberty in healthy Danish children.Methods: 190 healthy Danish children (97 boys) with mean age 9.25 y...

Objectives: Cross-sectional studies show that exercise may have positive effects on bone outcomes in youth. However, there is no evidence from longitudinal studies, which type of sports can induce improvements in bone acquisition in adolescent athletes. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the longitudinal differences in bone acquisition and bone metabolism between adolescent males participating in osteogenic (football) and non-osteogenic (swimming, cycling) sports compa...
