In the study “Prevalence and Risk Factors of Morphometric Vertebral Fracture in Apparently Healthy Osteopenic Postmenopausal Thai Women” by Wattanachanya and Pongchaiyakul, the authors found that almost one third of healthy postmenopausal women with osteopenia had morphometric vertebral fractures. However, there was not an association between bone mineral density values and fractures, suggesting that bone mineral density does not tell the whole story

In the study “Age at menarche and Cardiovascular Health: Results from the NHANES 1999-2016” by Zheng et al, it was shown that early menarche was associated with worse cardiovascular health, especially among younger women but not in older women. Thus, the age of menarche is relevant for health outcomes and should be considered an important fact obtained in the medical history.
