    Background: The effects of subclinical hyperthyroidism and clinical hyperthyroidism on bone metabolism in premenopausal women are contradictory. Methods: Sixteen hyperthyroid (31.3±9.5 yrs), 23 subclinical hyperthyroid (33.7±7.3 yrs) and 20 healthy (31.7±8.1 yrs) premenopausal women were evaluated. Bone mineral density (BMD) was assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Osteocalcin, total alkaline phosphatase (tALP), homocysteine, β-2 microglobulin, hsCRP and deoxypyridinoline (DPD) concentrations were assessed. Demographic and anthropometrical parameters; and osteoporotic risk factors were evaluated. Results: Serum calcium, tALP, osteocalcin, β-2 microglobulin and DPD were significantly different in hyperthyroid group. However there was no difference for any of the study pa.. Read More»
