Researchers Find Correlation between Lower Bone Mineral Density and Poor Cardiovascular Health among Individuals

According to a new collaborative research led by the researchers of Queen Mary University of London and the University of Southampton's Medical Research Council Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit (MRC LEU) have reported to find link between poor bone quality and poor cardiovascular health among both men and women. In this study researchers utilized UK Biobank cohort to evaluate the association between bone and cardiovascular health, where they utilized a blend of imaging and blood biomarker data to investigate the linkage. Moreover, osteoporosis and heart disease are major health problems encountered by individuals, which have similar risk factors, which include sedentary lifestyle, increasing age, and smoking.

In the study, researchers observed that individuals with poor bone quality (lower bone density) caused greater arterial stiffness, which indicates about poor cardiovascular health in both men and women. Furthermore, researchers also informed about finding that individuals with poor bone health exhibited higher risk of dying from ischemic heart disease. Moreover researchers suggested that the study provides clear linkage between bone disease and cardiovascular health and varies in men and women.

Nick Harvey, Professor of Rheumatology and Clinical Epidemiology at the MRC LEU, University of Southampton, stated “The wealth of information available in the UK Biobank permitted a highly detailed analysis of the complex interactions between musculoskeletal and cardiovascular health, helping to elucidate potential underlying mechanism, and informing novel approaches to clinical risk assessment.”

Researchers concluded that it is important to understand novel determinants of heart disease, including the bone-heart axis, which can further aid in enhancing the treatment and prevention strategies of the disease and to improve health of the people.
