Determinants of Bone Mineral Density and Metabolic Syndrome

Study Description

Determinants of Bone Mineral Density and Metabolic Syndrome in South Asian Indian Men

This study aims to examine the association between body composition with bone density and risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. South Asian Indians have a lower bone density and a higher likelihood to develop metabolic syndrome (MetS) compared to Caucasians. MetS is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities that predispose an individual to cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. This study will understand if the metabolic and biochemical markers ( Indicators of bone building and breaking in the blood and urine, Lipids and other proteins) explain both low BMD and MetS in SAI men
