Relative importance of lean mass and fat mass on bone mineral density in a group of Lebanese postmenopausal women.
J Clin Densitom 2011 Jul-Sep; 14(3):326-31JC

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the relative importance of lean mass and fat mass on bone mineral density (BMD) in a group of Lebanese postmenopausal women. One hundred ten Lebanese postmenopausal women (aged 65-84 yr) participated in this study. Age and years since menopause were recorded. Body weight and height were measured and body mass index (BMI) was calculated. Body composition (lean mass, fat mass, and fat mass percentage) was assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Bone mineral content (BMC) of the whole body (WB) and BMD of the WB, the lumbar spine (L1-L4), the total hip (TH), the femoral neck (FN), the ultra distal (UD) Radius, and the 1/3 Radius were measured by DXA. The expressions WB BMC/height and WB BMD/height were also used. Weight, BMI, fat mass, and lean mass were positively correlated to WB BMC, WB BMC/height, WB BMD/height, and to WB, L1-L4, TH, FN, UD Radius, and 1/3 Radius BMD. However, using multiple linear regression analyses, fat mass was more strongly correlated to BMC and to BMD values than lean mass after controlling for years since menopause. This study suggests that fat mass is a stronger determinant of BMC and BMD than lean mass in Lebanese postmenopausal women.
