Determinants of trabecular bone score and prevalent vertebral fractures in women with fragility fractures: a cross-sectional sub-study of NoFRACT

ConclusionSince TBS and SQ1 –SQ3 fractures were not associated, they may act as independent risk factors, justifying the use of both in post-fracture risk assessment.

Comorbidity is the presence of one or more additional conditions co-occurring with a primary condition. In this episode, host schizophrenic Rachel Star Withers with her cohost Gabe Howard will be discussing comorbidity with schizophrenia. Comorbidity is associated with worse health outcomes, more complex clinical management and increased health care costs. Occupational therapist and host of the podcast Occupied, Brock Cook, will be joining us to discuss ways that he works with people with schizophrenia to manage multiple health issues.  Highlights from “Comorbidity with Schizophrenia” Episode [01:28] What ...

AbstractOsteoporosis (OP) is a multi-factorial bone disease influenced by genetic factors, age, and lifestyles. The aim of this study is to evaluate the genetic correlations between OP and multiple lifestyle-related factors, and explore the genes underlying the detected genetic correlations. Linkage disequilibrium score regression (LDSC) analysis was applied to evaluate the genetic correlations of total body bone mineral density (TB-BMD) of different ages (including 15 –30 years, 30–45 years, 45–60 years, and over 60 years) with four common lifestyle/environment-related factors (includ...

Background: To date, limited data exist on airflow limitation (COPD) and bone mineral density in Japan.Aims and Objectives: To assess the association between airflow limitation (AL) severity and reduced bone density in Japanese males.Methods: This cross-sectional study included 296 subjects (mean age 71.2, SD 12.7), who underwent a comprehensive health examination that included spirometry and measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) at the left femoral neck on DXA in 2016-2017 at Japanese Red Cross Kumamoto Health Care Center. AL was defined as FEV1 / FVC of

ABSTRACTShort sleep duration, recognized as a public health epidemic, is associated with adverse health conditions, yet little is known about the association between sleep and bone health. We tested the associations of usual sleep behavior and bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis. In a sample of 11,084 postmenopausal women from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI; mean age 63.3  years, SD = 7.4), we performed a cross‐sectional study of the association of self‐reported usual hours of sleep and sleep quality (WHI Insomnia Rating Score) with whole body, total hip, femoral neck, and spine BMD using linear regr...

This article summarizes recent experimental and epidemiological data on the toxic and beneficial effects of ethanol and its metabolites (acetaldehyde), and focuses on their immunomodulatory effects. The section dealing with the toxic effects of alcohol focuses on its chronic toxicity (liver disorders, carcinogenic effects, cardiovascular disorders, neuropsychic disorders, addiction and withdrawal syndrome, hematologic disorders, reprotoxicity, osteoporosis) although acute toxicity is considered. The role of oxidative metabolism of ethanol by alcohol dehydrogenase, cytochrome P450 2E1, and aldehyde dehydrogenase, as well as...

This study was designed to investigate the impact of treatment with ALA on bone loss for aged female rats with ALH consumption. In this study 30 female Sprague-Dawley rats (22 months old), weighing approximately 520 g, were incorporated. The animals were randomly divided into three groups: group CON, group ALH and group ALH + ALA and received saline, ALH, ALH plus ALA treatment until death at 16 weeks, respectively. The results of maintaining bone mass and bone strength in senile female rats with ALH consumption were evaluated by histology, microcomputerized tomography, gene expression analysis and biomecha...
