This study aimed to identify whether bone turnover markers and sex steroids are associated with TBS and longitudinal change in TBS in a population of 465 healthy men (mean follow-up time of 12.5 years). The authors observed that total testosterone could be seen as a determinant for changes in TBS, while estradiol could not, indicating that both hormones may have an effect on different properties of bone. Moreover, the changes in bone turnover markers were associated with changes in TBS, suggesting that changes in bone turnover rate has an impact on bone microarchitecture.
