Antiretroviral therapy taken by people living with HIV decreases bone mineral density and increases fracture risk. Researchers investigated whether osteoporosis drugs denosumab and zolendronate could help men living with both osteoporosis and HIV.
Bone density often decreases with age and is closely related to overall physical performance. Researchers studied whether the relationship between bone density and overall physical health extended to oral health as well.
A common complication in people with inflammatory bowel disease is bone disorders, including osteoporosis and osteopenia, regardless of the person’s age. Researchers in Bucharest looked at ways to access bone impairment in people with inflammatory bowel disease through diagnostic testing.
Foods rich in calcium and protein like milk, yogurt, and cheese slow bone loss and improve insulin-like growth factor 1, which promotes bone and tissue growth. Researchers studied whether adding these to the diets of people aged 80 and older at care facilities would decrease their risk of hip fractures and falls.
