. Anthropometry and Bone Health Assessment Bone health and body composition were assessed using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA; Lunar Prodigy Pro; GE Medical Systems, Madison, WI). Bone mineral density (BMD) was determined for whole body, lumbar spine (L1–L4), total left hip, and neck. Normal BMD was

Anthropometry Height and weight were measured barefoot with participants wearing only underwear, to the nearest 0.1 cm and 0.1 kg using a mechanical balance with altimeter. Body mass index (BMI) was computed from the data as weight
