Aims: The influence of eating habits on bone mass is a controversial topic. We have use ultrasound to search for the relationships between nutrients and bone density. Methods: A total of 228 women (mean age 48.9 ± 13.7 years) were studied, and divided according to their gonadal status (pre-, peri- and postmenopausal women). The dietary intake was recorded for 7 days, and their bone mass was measured by phalangeal amplitude-dependent speed of sound (Ad-SOS). ANOVA was made to examine the differences according to gonadal status. To determine the possible correlation between Ad-SOS and nutrient intake, partial correlations, adjusted for important confounding variables, were done. Results: With partial correlations, there was no correlation of Ad-SOS with the nutrients studied here. Conclusion: We find no correlation of bone mass as measured by Ad-SOS with the most common nutrients and trace minerals, either for the participants as a whole or according to gonadal status.
