Abstract

Nutrition plays a role in the etiology of osteoporosis. Two of the most important nutrients for bone health are calcium and vitamin D. Plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D [ 25-( OH) D] is the most sensitive clinical index of vitamin D status and has been found to be positively related to bone mineral density ( BMD) in middle- aged and elderly women, and positive relations exist between the BMD of adult women and their calcium consumption throughout life.
