Bone Mineral Density at the Hip Declines Twice as
Quickly Among HIV-Infected Women than Men

  "The majority of our study population were less than 50 years old, and only 15% of female participants were menopausal at baseline. Thus, with aging, the rate of BMD decline among HIV-infected women is expected to be even more pronounced.....Among men, neither lumbar spine nor femoral neck BMD was associated with HCV....Among women: metabolic syndrome was associated with lower lumbar spine BMD (estimate -0.0193, SD 0.0061, p=0.0025)"
