  • lower bone mineral
  • Despite long-term thyroxine therapy (mean duration 7-9 [range 1-years) at doses (mean 191 [SD þg/day) that resulted in higher serum thyroxine and lower serum thyrotropin concentrations than in the controls, the patients showed no evidence of lower bone mineral density than the controls at any site. (thyroid.ca)
  • By HOLLA, ANAND Anxiety, fatigue and loneliness, all synonymous with modern living, can lower bone mineral density If you thought you'd heard of all kinds of health problems that stress can cause, there's more. (queenshealthemporium.com)
  • standard deviations
  • Estimates of the prevalence of osteoporosis vary with the specific definition chosen, but the World Health Organisation has estimated that 30% of all women aged over 50 (postmenopausal) have osteoporosis according to a definition of bone mineral density being more than 2.5 standard deviations below the mean for young healthy adult women at any site. (bmj.com)
  • In 1994, the World Health Organization defined osteoporosis on the basis of a bone mineral density that is 2.5 standard deviations below that in peak young normal persons. (aafp.org)
  • The T score is most important amongst these and refers to the number of standard deviations the bone mineral density differs from gender-matched normal young individuals. (rheumaknowledgy.com)
  • baseline
  • All baseline bone mineral measurements were reduced compared with those in an age- and sex-matched control population. (antiagingatlanta.com)
  • However, in multiple regression model after adjustment for baseline BMC, the baseline radiological scoring did not influence the progression of bone loss as assessed with QCT (p = 0.22, p for BMC*X-ray syndesmophyte scoring interaction = 0.65, p for ANOVA-based X-ray syndesmophyte scoring*time interaction = 0.39).

  • changes in bone mineral
  • It is not known whether the recently described break in the trend in hip fracture incidence in many settings applies in both women and men, depends on changes in bone mineral density (BMD) or changes in other risk factors, or whether it is apparent in both urban and rural settings. (edu.au)
  • Methods
  • In addition to the whole-bone segmentation methods, we performed atlas-based partitioning of subregions within the second metatarsal for all subjects, from which the volumes and BMDs were obtained for each subregion. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • The new methods demonstrated large variations in BMDs between the 12 bones of the foot within a subject and between subjects, and between subregions within the second metatarsal. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • These methods can provide an important outcome measure for clinical research trials investigating the effects of interventions, aging, or disease progression on bone loss, or gain, in individual foot bones. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • The current invention provides methods and pharmaceutical formulations that are useful for inhibiting the loss of bone. (google.es)
  • epidemiological studies
  • PATIENTS--48 Men (aged 21-79, median 44) recruited from the local community including 35 male cotwins of twin pairs of differing sex recruited from the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council twin registry for epidemiological studies on determinants of bone mineral density. (garvan.org.au)
  • reduction in bone
  • Since thyroxine replacement therapy is needed by many people, especially those over 60 years old, any association between hyperthyroidism secondary to thyroxine therapy and a reduction in bone density could be an important clinical problem. (thyroid.ca)
  • Two studies in the USA suggested that thyroxine therapy resulted in a reduction in bone mineral density. (thyroid.ca)
