Additional Study Information:

The BoneGN study will help us learn how bones and muscles are responding to Glomerular Diseases. These conditions may gradually weaken bones and increase the risk of having a fracture (broken bone). In the future, the results can contribute in developing strategies to improve the bone health. We are looking for healthy children and adults between 5 and 55 years old who match in age, race, weight and height with our study participants with Glomerular Diseases. - Obtain a free bone health evaluation - No blood draw is required - Visits are completed at Columbia University Irving Medical Center - You will receive compensation up to $70 per study visit - Contact our study team to check if you qualify
