However, these relationships still remain controversial. Since the bone mineral density (BMD) is related to depression and depression is related to hypocholesterolemia, there might exist a correlation between BMD and plasma cholesterol levels. To prove this, we enrolled 5000 individuals, 2170 males, and 2830 females, who had health check-ups at a… CONTINUE READING
