The aim of the present study was to analyse the influence of body components on bone mineral density (BMD) in women from perimenopause to old age. A total of 117 women were allocated into three groups according to reproductive stage (STRAW): perimenopausal (PEM, N=28, mean age 44.8±3.6), early postmenopausal (EPM, N=36, mean age 51.4±2.8) and late postmenopausal (LPM, N=53; mean age 64.0±1.7). Total body mass, body mass index (BMI), lean mass (LM), fat mass (FM), fat percentage (FP) and BMD at lumbar spine (lBMD) and femoral neck (fBMD) were assessed.
