  1. Pregnancy and lactation as determinants of bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.

    Article - En anglais

    The relation of pregnancy and breast feeding to bone mineral density of the wrist, radius, hip, and spine was examined in a white, upper middle-class, homogeneous sample of 741 postmenopausal women ranging in age from 60 to 89 years.

    Number of pregnancies ranged from 0 to 14, with a mean of 2.0 pregnancies and 1.5 live births.

    Almost two thirds of the women who had had a live birth reported breast feeding.

    Unadjusted comparisons indicated that bone mineral density of the wrist, radius, and hip increased with increasing numbers of pregnancies, and women who had breast-fed had higher bone mineral densities at these sites.
