Researchers at the 93rd Annual Meeting of Endocrine Society reported that more and deeper wrinkles during the early years of menopause may be linked with lower bone density, ie osteopenia and osteoporosis.
As expected, individuals with skin rigidity had higher bone densities.
The researchers report that changes in the collagen scaffold of skin and bone with aging may contribute to changes in bone density.
Most women in their 40's and 50's should be screened for osteoporosis. If you have not yet had a DEXA scan and you have a lot of deep wrinkles, it is a good idea to ask your doctor to order the test for you.
