The metabolic syndrome (MS) is characterized by abdominal obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, hypertension and dyslipidemia. Abdominal adiposity and insulin resistance appear to be at the core of the pathophysiology of MS and its individual components (1) As we known obesity or high body mass index (BMI) were associated with high bone mass and protected against excessive aging-related bone loss(2,3) Conversely, insulin resistance has a strong association with low grade inflammation which results in increased bone resorption(4) Similarly, MS has both of the two conflicting core factors of BMD, obesity protecting bone mass but insulin resistance activing bone resorption. As a result, we conducted a cross sectional study to examine the relationship between MS and bone mineral density (BMD). © 2013 Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine and Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.
