The Female Athlete Triad is a syndrome occurring in physically active girls and women. Its interrelated components are disordered eating, amenorrhea, and osteoporosis. Pressure placed on young women to achieve or maintain unrealistically low body weight underlies development of the Triad. Adolescents and women training in sports in which low body weight is(More)
We examined how the use of bone turnover markers and educational information affects persistence of bisphosphonate use in osteoporotic patients. We found that reporting bone turnover results and/or educational information did not affect persistence. Long-term adherence and persistence to osteoporosis medication are poor. We examined whether reporting of(More)

Convenient techniques for measuring rates of bone turnover have been developed in recent years with the advent of biochemical markers of bone metabolism. One recent of these techniques is a collection method and quantitative enzyme immunoassay for free pyridinoline crosslinks in human sweat. The concentrations of pyridinoline crosslinks in 5-day sweat(More)
