This cross-sectional study of the Rancho Bernardo, California, cohort examines the relation between bone mineral density and eight measures of body size (total weight, body mass index, waist-hip ratio, lean mass, fat mass, percentage fat mass, and current and maximum adult height) measured between 1988 and 1991 in 1,492 ambulatory white adults aged 55-84 years. Lean mass, fat mass, and percentage fat mass were measured by bioelectric impedance. Bone mineral density was measured at the hip and… CONTINUE READING
