Abstract (in english)
   Osteoporosis is the most frequent and most serious bone disease, which leads to the reduction in normally mineralised bone mass. The examination was conducted with the aid of dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) using the standard method with the QDR 4500 device from Hologic (USA). There was found a statistically significant difference only between the average Bone Mineral Density (BMD) values of males and females. BDM values of the Great Moravian population were higher both in males and females compared to the Hologic DXA Reference Data Based on NHANES III of the recent population. It may be concluded, if somewhat exaggeratedly, that the inhabitants of the Great Moravian Empire enjoyed better living conditions or health than the recent population.
