Short and long-term variations in serum calciotropic hormones after a single very large dose of ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) or cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) in the elderly.
CholecalCiferol is almost twice as potent as ergocalciferol in increasing serum 25(OH)D, when administered either by mouth or im, when administering either by Mouth or im.
Quality of life in ambulatory postmenopausal women: the impact of reduced bone mineral density and subclinical vertebral fractures
The results showed that QUALEFFO is not able to discriminate between patients with or without subclinical vertebral fractures, and some aspects of QOL appear to be impaired in patients with subclinical osteoporosis or reduced BMD.
A new device for measuring resting energy expenditure (REE) in healthy subjects.
Potential clinical utility of a new IRMA for parathyroid hormone in postmenopausal patients with primary hyperparathyroidism.
The distribution of the PTH-W:PTH-T ratio in patients and controls suggests that PHPT does not markedly influence the rate at which biologically inactive fragments are generated by central or peripheral cleavage of PTH, and seems to contradict the hypothesized effect of acute hypocalcemia in modulating the central secretion of hormonal fragments.
Vitamin D status as the major factor determining the circulating levels of parathyroid hormone: a study in normal subjects
The central role of 25(OH)D in regulating PTH secretion in physiological conditions is demonstrated, and mean serum levels of parathyroid hormone were significantly higher than those in subjects of similar age with normal vitamin status with all the assays employed.
Assessment of fracture risk by the FRAX algorithm in men and women with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus: a cross‐sectional study
This work investigated FRAX‐estimated fracture risk in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), compared with concomitantly enrolled control subjects.
Skeletal involvement in patients with diabetes mellitus
Studies on skeletal involvement in patients with diabetes mellitus have generated conflicting results, largely because of the pathogenetic complexity of the condition.
Lung Ultrasound-Implemented Diagnosis of Acute Decompensated Heart Failure in the ED: A SIMEU Multicenter Study.
The implementation of LUS with the clinical evaluation may improve accuracy of ADHF diagnosis in patients presenting to the ED and had a significantly higher accuracy than a standard workup.
