Synopsis: 
It is proposed that in conditions where the bone turnover rate is high, mobilization of lead from bone to blood will occur. Mobilization of lead from bone to blood in elderly osteopaenic patients and elderly osteoporotic patients was similar to that in healthy controls.

ABSTRACT

Objective: It is proposed that in some conditions such as pregnancy and osteoporosis where the bone turnover rate is high, there is mobilization of various minerals including lead (Pb) from bone to blood. This study aimed to determine if there were any differences in serum Pb levels among elderly osteopaenic patients, elderly osteoporotic persons and healthy controls.
