Conclusions: Osteoporosis is a common disorder in postmenopausal women. Management of skeletal health in postmenopausal women involves assessing risk factors for fracture, reducing modifiable risk factors through dietary and lifestyle changes, and the use of pharmacologic therapy for patients at significant risk of osteoporosis or fracture. For women with osteoporosis, lifelong management is necessary. Treatment decisions occur continuously over the lifespan of a postmenopausal woman. Decisions must be individualized and should include the patient in the process of shared decision-making.

In this study, we assess the association between the occurrence of new fractures and vitamin D deficiency in Japanese patients with rheumatoid arthritis using our large IORRA cohort. The results suggest that vitamin D deficiency is a significant risk factor for new fractures in Japanese female patients over the age of 50  years with rheumatoid arthritis.PurposeBoth rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and menopause are known risk factors for the onset of osteoporosis. The occurrence of new clinical fractures in patients with RA can significantly lower quality of life. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether vitamin ...

Objective: To investigate the impact of vitamin D levels on early clinical function outcomes and the potential risk factors of moderate-to-severe pain prevalence in postmenopausal women after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Methods: From April 2017 to December 2019, 226 women were retrospectively recruited. The women were divided into two groups based on their preoperative serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels: (1) vitamin D-sufficient group (≥30 ng/mL); (2) vitamin D-deficient group ( 0.05). The incidence of postoperative moderate-to-severe pain was 16.4% (95% CI 11.8%-21.9%). Multivariate logistic regre...

(The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)) Vitamin D is a critical part of a healthy diet. Among other benefits, it has been shown to protect against bone disease and maintain soft tissue health. A new study suggests that it may also play a role in the degree of postoperative pain postmenopausal women experience after undergoing total knee replacement. Study results are published online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

In conclusion, PLG attenuates high calcium/phosphate-induced vascular calcification by upregulating P53/PTEN signaling in VSMCs. Tsimane and Moseten Hunter-Gatherers Exhibit Minimal Levels of Atrial Fibrillation https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/03/tsimane-and-moseten-hunter-gatherers-exhibit-minimal-levels-of-atrial-fibrillation/ Epidemiological data for the Tsimane and Moseten populations in Bolivia shows that they suffer very little cardiovascular disease in later life, despite a presumably greater lifetime burden of infectious disease (and consequent inflammation) than is the case for people i...

AbstractThere is an increased risk of osteoporosis and an abnormal bone turn over in neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1). Our objective is to evaluate bone status in NF1 and to look for associations with cutaneous phenotype. We conducted a descriptive, monocentric study. We included 60 NF1 women, 18 –51 years old, non-menopausal, divided in 2 groups: «at risk phenotype» (ARP) composed by 30 patients with at least 2 subcutaneous neurofibromas (SC-NF) and «classical phenotype» (CP) composed by 30 patients with none or 1 SC-NF. We evaluated low bone mineral density (BMD) risk factors and me asured BMD...

ConclusionsThe present study has allowed us to generate data on serum concentrations of PINP/CTX in a diverse group of healthy community-dwelling Indian adults with varying serum  vitamin D levels. It might aid in monitoring response to anti-osteoporotic therapy amongst native Indians.

Post-menopausal osteoporosis (PMOP) is associated with estrogen deficiency and worldwide, is becoming increasingly more prevalent in aging women. Various anti-PMOP drugs have been developed to reduce the burden of PMOP; generally, these drugs are efficacious, but with some adverse side effects. Tubson-2 decoction (TBD), a popular traditional Mongolian medicine, has been used to treat PMOP for centuries. However, the precise mechanisms underlying the action of TBD on PMOP have yet to be fully elucidated. Herein, we combined network pharmacology with untargeted metabolomics to identify the key targets and metabolic pathways ...
