Abstract To investigate the association of weight change over 48 months with progression of meniscal intrasubstance degeneration (MID). We studied 487 subjects with MID at baseline and after 48 months using 3-T MRI with the same protocol (FSE sequences with and without fat suppression). These participants lost weight (ae<yen>3%, n = 141), had moderate weight gain (3-10%, n = 77), substantial weight gain (> 10%, n = 15) or maintained stable weight (n = 254). Progression of MID to a meniscal tear was assessed using the WORMS grading system and compared among weight change groups using logistic regression. ANOVA and chi-square tests were used to study the differences in subjects' characteristics. Progression of MID increased from weight loss to substantial weight gain (p < 0.001) and was significantly more likely with both moderate weight gain (odds ratio [OR], 4.9

95% confidence interval [CI] 2.4-8.9) and substantial weight gain (OR, 9.5

95% CI 3.2-28.5) compared to stable weight. Results were similar in both menisci for moderate weight gain (medial: OR, 6.8

95% CI 3.5-11.3

lateral: OR, 2.6

95% CI 1.1-6.6) and substantial weight gain (medial: OR, 21.0

95% CI 5.1-80.7

lateral: OR, 9.7

95% CI 0.95-100.2). Weight gain is associated with an increased likelihood that meniscal intrasubstance degeneration will progress with the risk increasing with greater weight gain.
