Trabecular Bone Score in Overweight and Normal-Weight Young Women


The aim of this study was to compare Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) in overweight and normal-weight young women. This study included 14 overweight (BMI > 25 kg/m(2)) and 42 normal-weight (BMI < 25 kg/m(2)) young Lebanese women whose ages range from 18 to 32 years. Body composition, Bone Mineral Content (BMC), Bone Mineral Density (BMD), and lumbar spine (L1-L4) TBS were assessed by dual-energy X-ray asborptiometry (DXA). The DXA measurements were completed for the whole body (WB), the lumbar spine (L1-L4), the total hip (TH) and the femoral neck (FN). Physical activity, daily calcium intake, daily protein intake and sleep quality index were evaluated using validated questionnaires. Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max in l/mn) was measured whilst exercising on a bicycle ergometer using a specialized device. Weight, height, BMI, lean mass, fat mass, WB BMC, WB BMD, TH BMD and FN BMD were significantly higher in overweight women compared to normal-weight women. Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) was not significantly different between the two groups (overweight and normal-weight). In the whole population (n = 56), weight, height, BMI, lean mass and fat mass were positively correlated to BMC and BMD values but not to TBS values. VO2 max (l/mn) was positively correlated to BMC, BMD and TBS (p < 0.05). This study suggests that being overweight is not associated with higher trabecular bone score values in young women.
