Table 3 Bone outcomes in the Fracture and BMD studies

From: Low urine pH and acid excretion do not predict bone fractures or the loss of bone mineral density: a prospective cohort study

  Fracture study BMD study
Bone Mineral Density (BMD):   
Baseline FN BMD, g/cm2 0.727 +/- 0.128 0.731 +/- 0.126
Baseline LS BMD, g/cm2 0.936 +/- 0.166 0.938 +/- 0.160
Baseline HIP BMD, g/cm2 0.880 +/- 0.151 0.885 +/- 0.146
Change BMD, over 5-years   
5-year change FN BMD, g/cm2 n/a -0.005 +/- 0.035
5-year change LS BMD, g/cm2 n/a 0.018 +/- 0.054
5-year change HIP BMD, g/cm2 n/a -0.001 +/- 0.036
Change FN BMD, % of baseline n/a -0.68% +/- 5.0
Change LS BMD, % of baseline n/a 1.9% +/- 6.0
Change HIP BMD, % of baseline n/a -0.11% +/- 4.2
