Abstract

Objective: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a gastrointestinal system disorder with a variety of causes. The prevalence of reduced bone mineral density (BMD) is greater in people with IBD as compared with healthy individuals. In this study, we aimed to investigate the possible risk factors for low BMD in subjects with ulcerative colitis (UC) and in healthy control subjects.
