  1. Thiazides and bone mineral density in elderly men and women.

    Article - En anglais

    The relation of bone mineral density of the ultradistal radius, midshaft radius, hip, and lumbar spine to thiazide use were examined in a community-based sample of 1,696 white men and women aged 44-98 years.

    Male thiazide users had higher age-adjusted bone mineral density levels only at the midshaft radius (p<0.05).

    Among women, thiazide users had significantly higher bone mineral density levels at all four sites (p<0.05), both before and after controlling for the effects of age, body mass index, smoking, and estrogen use.

    The association was explained by current thiazide use ; no significant association was found between past use or duration of use and bone mineral density levels.
