Conclusion The current study showed that adynamic bone disease is prevalent even in pre-dialysis CKD population. High bone turnover disease may not be the most prevalent type in diabetic CKD. However, it could contribute to the development of osteoporosis in CKD subjects. Serum total ALP can serve as a biochemical marker to identify pattern of bone turnover where intact PTH is not available.

AbstractIn clinical practice, areal bone mineral density (aBMD) is usually measured using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) to assess bone status in patients with or without osteoporotic fracture. As BMD has a Gaussian distribution, it is difficult to define a cutoff for osteoporosis diagnosis. Based on epidemiological considerations, WHO defined a DXA-based osteoporosis diagnosis with a T-score

ABSTRACT Obesity is a growing epidemic both in Australia and worldwide. Being overweight or obese is known to be adversely associated with multiple cardiovascular risk factors such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, lipid disorders and hypertension. Despite the adverse impact of overweight and obesity, recent observational studies have suggested that in some overweight and obese individuals with established chronic disease, there is a survival advantage which is paradoxically better than individuals of normal weight. A burgeoning area of interest is the existence of this paradox in chronic endocrine disorders, especially with re...

Abstract Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide with an increased prevalence of metabolic, macro-, and microvascular complications. The primary causes of mortality in NAFLD are cardiovascular disease (CVD), malignancy, and liver disease. NAFLD is a multisystem disease that affects a variety of extrahepatic organ systems. The main focus of this review is to summarize the reported extrahepatic associations, which include CVD, chronic kidney disease, obstructive sleep apnea, osteoporosis, psoriasis, colorectal cancer, iron overload, and various endocrinopa...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that the prevalence of CDs is high in the German elderly population. Hypertension was the most frequent chronic condition and around 25% of patients displayed at least four CDs. PMID: 26977142 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Our study of HD patients shows that higher serum sclerostin levels are associated with higher BMD, lower aortic calcification scores, and a better survival rate.Nephron

Purpose of review: Many prevalent clinical conditions, such as chronic kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, chronic obstructive pulmonary, and cardiovascular disease associate with features of premature ageing, such as muscle wasting, hypogonadism, osteoporosis, and arteriosclerosis. Studies on various animal models have shown that caloric restriction prolongs lifespan. Studies of animals with unusual long or short life for their body size may also contribute to better understanding of ageing processes. The aim of the present article is to review what we can learn about nutritional modulations and ageing interactions from an...

Abstract: The effect of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection on bone mineral density in patients without advanced liver disease remains unclear. Hence, we assessed the association between HBV infection and the risk of osteoporosis. From 2000 to 2011, patients older than 20 years with HBV infection were identified from the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000. Of the 180,730 sampled patients, 36,146 and 144,584 patients were categorized into HBV infection and comparison cohorts, respectively. Compared with the comparison cohort, the HBV infection patients had a higher risk of osteoporosis (adjusted hazard ratio [aHR]: 1...
