Animals were assessed using densitometer dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) system. Several hormonal markers for bone growth and metabolism were also assayed.

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• DXA Body mass, fat mass, lean mass, bone mineral density and content, craniofacial dimensions.
• metabolic panel Thyroxine (serum).
• hormone quantification Osteocalcin, insulin-like growth factor 1.
