Background: This study investigated the relationships of bone mineral density (BMD) with body composition, basal metabolic rate (BMR), and fat distribution. Methods: We measured body mass index (BMI), anthropometrics, and BMD in 345 postmenopausal women and 224 elderly men. Total body fat (TBF), fat distribution, and BMR were assessed using a body composition analyzer. Lumbar spine and proximal femur BMDs were measured with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Results: Lumbar spine BMD was more strongly correlated with …
