Short #Sleep Is Associated With Low Bone Mineral Density and #Osteoporosis in the Women’s Health Initiative

.. In adjusted linear regression models, women who reported sleeping 5 hours or less per night had on average 0.012 to 0.018 g/cm2 significantly lower BMD at all four sites compared with women who reported sleeping 7 hours per night (reference). In adjusted multinomial models, women reporting 5 hours or less per night had higher odds of low bone mass and osteoporosis of the hip (odds ratio [OR] = 1.22; … Continue reading Short #Sleep Is Associated With Low Bone Mineral Density and #Osteoporosis in the Women’s Health Initiative

#Atopic eczema and #fracture risk in adults: A population-based cohort study

..Those with eczema had increased risk of hip (HR, 1.10; 99% CI, 1.06-1.14), pelvic (HR, 1.10; 99% CI, 1.02-1.19), spinal (HR, 1.18; 99% CI, 1.10-1.27), and wrist (HR, 1.07; 99% CI, 1.03,-1.11) fractures. We found no evidence of increased proximal humeral (HR, 1.06; 99% CI, 0.97-1.15) fracture risk. Fracture risk increased with increasing eczema severity, with the strongest associations in people with severe eczema (compared … Continue reading #Atopic eczema and #fracture risk in adults: A population-based cohort study
