SummaryUnlike a high body mass index or waist circumference, a high trunk-to-leg-volume ratio does not associate with a lower risk of osteopenia/osteoporosis at the femoral neck. While elevated TLVR showed a suggestive association with a history of wrist fracture in women, additional research is needed to confirm this suggestion.PurposeBody mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) are commonly used to predict bone health, which is typically assessed via bone mineral density (BMD). Trunk-to-leg-volume ratio (TLVR), a relatively novel measure, predicts cardiometabolic outcomes, but its relationships with BMD and fracture remain unstudied. This study evaluated these anthropometric measures’ associations with BMD and fracture in Americans aged 40–60 years.MethodsAnalyses of middle-aged adults from the 2013–2014 to 2017–2018 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were conducted. Whole-body, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry was used to quantify TLVR as well as BMD at the lumbar spine, while a femur-specific scan was used to quantify femoral neck BMD. Fracture history was self-reported. Linear and logistic regression models were constructed with age, diabetes, smoking, race/ethnicity, education, and physical activity as confounding variables.ResultsTLVR was generally not associated with BMD, while WC and BMI showed positive associations with femoral neck BMD. Odds of osteopenia/osteoporosis at the femoral neck were ~ 65–80% lower among participants in the highest tertile of BMI and WC versus the lowest (p < 0.001). There were no statistically significant associations between anthropometric predictors and fracture. Women in tertiles 2 or 3 of TLVR (p = 0.097 and 0.079, respectively) did have 2.66 times the odds of wrist fracture than women in tertile 1, but this was not significant.ConclusionAs shown in previous research, BMI and WC show positive associations with femoral BMD. In contrast, the more novel anthropometric marker TLVR shows no association with femoral BMD, and no clear association with fracture.
