Change in Lean Body Mass Is a Major Determinant of Change in Areal Bone Mineral Density of the Proximal Femur: A 12-Year Observational Study

Abstract

Our objective was to assess the contribution of lean body mass (LBM) and fat body mass (FBM) to areal bone mineral density (aBMD) in women during the years surrounding menopause. We used a 12-year observational design. Participants included 75 Caucasian women who were premenopausal, 53 of whom were available for follow-up. There were two measurement periods… (More)
