Severity of Facial Wrinkles May Predict Bone Density in Early Menopause, Study Suggests

WrinklesScienceDaily (June 6, 2011) — A news study finds that the worse a woman’s skin wrinkles are during the first few years of menopause, the lower her bone density is.

The results are being presented at The Endocrine Society’s 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston.

“In postmenopausal women the appearance of the skin may offer a glimpse of the skeletal well-being, a relationship not previously described,” said Lubna Pal, MD, a reproductive endocrinologist and associate professor at Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Conn.

The study demonstrates only an association between bone density and skin wrinkling, stressed Pal, the study’s principal investigator. However, she called their findings noteworthy.

“This information,” Pal said, “may allow for the possibility of identifying postmenopausal women at fracture risk at a glance, without dependence on costly tests.”

Wendy Vineyard Comments…

Although the connection between the health of bones and skin may, at first, seem unclear, they’re both made from the same building blocks – proteins known as collagens. As we age, changes in collagen occur that may account for age-related skin changes including worsening skin wrinkles and sagging skin, and also contribute to deterioration in bone quality and quantity.

Just one more reason to use food and the right supplements to create health, wellness and beauty from the inside out…

More studies are needed about the connection between wrinkles and bone density, but I’m not waiting before I take action to prevent trouble. Are you?
