Women who had high bone mass were nearly 20 pounds heavier and had a 4.5% lower portion of lean body mass than those in the control group of a study that suggests bone mass may be linked with BMI. Researchers noted "a particular tendency toward central adiposity" among patients with high bone mass and suggest the relationship is a causative one, but more study is needed. The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
