Osteoporosis Prevention in Premenopausal Women and Children
Maximising peak bone mass, and reducing premenopausal bone loss are both potential
approaches for the long-term prevention of osteoporosis and fracture. However, little is
known about how to improve osteoporosis preventive behaviours in either
premenopausal women or children.
We performed a randomised controlled trial of individualised bone density feedback
combined with either a leaflet or group education (the Osteoporosis Prevention and
Self-management Course (( OPSMC)) in 467 healthy premenopausal women.
Outcomes measured included changes in calcium intake; physical activity and fitness;
BMD at the femoral neck and lumbar spine; osteoporosis knowledge and self-efficacy;
and, maternal report of changing children's calcium intake and physical activity.
