Fractures are a significant public health problem in both
later and younger life.1,2 Increasing bone density in childhood
may decrease fracture risk in later life and during
childhood.3–5 However, the assessment of bone density in
children is more difficult due to the strong association
between body size and bone density. Bone turnover markers
are an independent risk factor for fracture in adults after
taking bone density into account6 and thus may give
additional information in children. They do appear to have
clinical utility in children.7
