The study investigated the relationship between cholesterol levels and bone mineral density. The study included 136 healthy, postmenopausal women.
The study found that women with cholesterol levels above 240 mg/dL (6.2 mmol/L) had significantly higher bone mineral density than women with cholesterol levels below 240 mg/dL (6.2 mmol/L).
