Bone mineral content (BMC) at two different radial sites (mid-diaphysis and ultra-distal epiphysis), anthropometric measurements (Body Mass Index, Lipidic Area, and Muscular Area) and nutrients intake were measured in two populations of women selected on the basis of early (< 9 years) or remote (> 15 years) menopause. The results show the presence of positive relationships between BMC, and protein and lipid intakes in the population of women in early menopause; in the other population no relationships were found. Glucid, fibre and calcium intakes were not related to the BMC of both populations. The positive relationships between BMC, and protein and lipid intakes in the population of women in early menopause is likely mediated by anthropometric characteristics as Body Mass Index and Muscular Area.
