Abstract
This longitudinal study investigates the association between C-reactive protein (CRP), osteoporosis, fractures, and mortality in 1044 elderly women. CRP was not an indicator for low bone mineral density (BMD), bone loss, or fracture in elderly women; however, women with elevated CRP levels over a prolonged period lost more bone over the 10-year follow-up, although fracture risk was not increased.
