Bone health status assessment
 T-score −1.0 (−3.6–3.6)
 Qui/Stiff 87.3 ± 19.8
 BMD 0.5 ± 0.1
  1. The mean BMI was 26.7 ± 3.1 kg/m2 for men and 27.1 ± 4.6 kg/m2 for women. According to BMI, the majority of subjects was in the overweight range. Values of WC higher that the optimal cut offs were found in 36.2% of men and in 57.5% of women
  2. BMI, body mass index; WC, waist circumference; HC, hip circumference; WHR, waist-to-hip ratio; QUI/Stiff, quantitative ultrasound index/stiffness; BMD, bone mineral density
