Description

In the study a group of women in which age-related bone loss is already clear and common fractures at baseline are investigated. The expected increase in fracture incidence, especially of the hip, takes place within the time frame of the study. The cohort is of sufficient size to allow the sub-grouping, e.g. for fracture type. Furthermore, the study allows detailed evaluation of genes associated with bone loss, such as the elderly.

Research subjects were randomly selected from the population register. During the years 1995-1999 were treated in 1604 75-year-old women in (33% of all 75-year-old women in Malmö during the period). Of these women, participated in 1044 at the first visit. All of the study participants was 75 years at the first visit, of northern European descent, and residents in the city of Malmö. Follow-up visits occurred at 76, 78, 80 and 85 years of age.

Data have been collected​​ during the visits, by measuring height, weight, bone density, body fat percentage, muscle mass, by physiotherapist tests (muscle strength, walking speed, balance), as well as through an exten
