Trabecular bone score (TBS) is a recent noninvasive analytical method, based upon DXA images, related to bone microarchitecture or bone quality; together, TBS and DXA may evidence bone strength. Falls and osteoporotic fractures increase with ageing, while both BMD and vitamin D levels slowly decline. Data about the influence of vitamin D on the TBS are scarce.Aim: To evaluate the influence of the blood vitamin D levels on the TBS in normal men.<p cla...
