Abstract

This review aims to look at the relationship between adipose mass and bone density in an overweight/obese population. The available evidence does appear to support evidence of a positive relationship between adipose mass and bone density when considered from a population level. There are however factors associated with an overweight or obese state, that have been shown to be detrimental to bone health, e.g. an increased state of oxidative stress, and physical inactivity. It is possible therefore, that the relationship between adipose and bone mass, which appears positive when considered from a population perspective, may in fact not be when considered from the upper end of the adiposity continuum.
