In large cohort studies changes in bone density and mass are often described statistically as mean values over a period of time1,2. This implies that bone loss occurs homogeneously in the study population over the observation period. Also in intervention studies often only mean changes in bone mass and density are reported3. So, for example, information about the number of non-responders are concealed in many studies4. Our study aims to clarify if there are temporary and individual variations in the rate of bone loss over a period of 4 years in an elderly population
