UPDATES:WEIGHT LOSS CAN BE BAD FOR THE BONES IN POSTMENOPAUSAL WOMEN.


Researchers at the University of California, Davis found that, while older women are often advised to lose weight to reduce the risk of hypertension, weight loss of just half a stone (seven pounds) a year led to a significant drop in BMD around 6 x 10-4 g/cm2 for each pound shed.The researchers advise that weight loss programmes for older women should be accompanied by recommendations for preserving BMD as well (J Am Geriatr Soc, 2000; 48: 753-9).
