CONTEXT Lactation is associated with decreased areal bone mineral density (aBMD). Replenishment occurs especially after ceased lactation. Changes in volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD), microstructure, and dimensional parameters are unknown and may clarify the role of lactation for skeletal health. OBJECTIVE AND MAIN OUTCOMES: The objective of the study was to test the hypothesis that lactation is associated with changes in aBMD, vBMD, microstructure, and dimensional parameters. DESIGN At… CONTINUE READING
