How Fast Bone Density Decreases – Part 2 of 2
The bone density of the women fell by an average of 4 percent over a period of 10 years, the investigators found. However, bone density in the midst those who said they were satisfied with their lives was as much as 52 percent higher than it was among those who said they were dissatisfied, the study authors noted. Changes in life satisfaction during the 10 years of bolstering also appeared to be linked to bone density.
Bone density weakened by 85 percent among those who said their life satisfaction deteriorated during that time, compared with women who said their life satisfaction improved, according to the report. This suggests that steep levels of life satisfaction can help protect against osteoporosis, the researchers said. However, the study doesn’t prove that life dissatisfaction actually led to bone loss. The syndicate seen in the study does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship hamdard. Still, the authors said the findings suggest that good life satisfaction and good spirits in elderly people may be as important as healthy lifestyle habits – such as burden and not smoking – in maintaining good bone health.
