Even minor changes in bone mineral density reduce hip fracture risk: study

Small changes in bone mineral density across populations can lead to a reduction in the incidence of hip fractures by almost half, according to Australian researchers.

Authors from the University of Technology quantified the relationship between change in bone mineral density (BMD) and hip fracture incidence in two prospective cohorts separated by about 10 years.
