MUZZO B., Santiago; LEIVA B., Laura  y  RAMIREZ M., Ivan. PEAK BONE MASS VALUES OF YOUNG CHILEAN ADULTS COMPARED WITH LUNAR´S VALUES. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2003, vol.30, n.1, pp.53-57. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182003000100007.

Achievement of a high peak bone mass (PBM) in the young adult constitute the most important safeguard to prevent bone mineralization (BM) problems of the elderly. We were interested to know if young healthy Chilean adults, with all the positive factors that favors a normal BM, had a PBM similar to the Lunar's reference values, that are used to determine the adequation of BM in Lunar's densitometers. Twelve men and 11 women, 27 to 29 years of age were studied. Bone mineral density (BMD) of whole body, spine and hips were determined with a LUNAR-DEXA densitometer. No significant differences were found in BMD of whole body, spine and hips of this young Chilean adults compared with Lunar's reference values. These results point out that Lunar's references values can be used as the gold standard to achieve early in the adult life in order to prevent osteoporosis

Palabras clave : Peak bone mass; young adults; bone mineralization; osteoporosis.
