While there have been studies in Singapore on the prevalence and economic burden of osteoporotic

hip fracture, there is a severe lack of reference data on bone mineral density and prevalence of osteoporosis. The

purpose of this study is to establish the reference values for BMD and compare prevalence of osteoporotic conditions

using other available reference values so as to better understand the status of bone health in Singaporean adults.
