Vertebral trabecular bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by quantitative computed tomography (QCT) in 1061 subjects (610 females and 451 males aged from 7 to 91 and from 12 to 89, respectively) with known history of diseases or taking medicines affecting bone metabolism. Peak BMD values in our patients were observed at the age of 20-29 years with further gradual decrement in men and more steep in women. Negative relationship between BMD and age was r = -0.991 for men and r = -0.968 for women. Analyzing BMD changes by decades we observed the largest decrement in men after 60 (13.1% for 60-69 and 14.1% for 70-79 years of age) and in women after 50 (22.5% for 50-59, 22.1% for 60-69 and 20.8% for 70-79 years) which was most probably due to decline in sex hormones production that is known to significantly influence bone metabolism. This was confirmed by BMD values three-phase approximation in women showing the lowest rate of calcium loss by trabecular bone in reproductive period (1.9 mg/cm3/yr) and the highest in perimenopause (3.98 mg/cm3/yr). Annual calcium loss in postmenopause was 2.22 mg/cm3.
