(1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted to figure this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota.
