Opposite bone remodeling effects of teriparatide and alendronate in increasing bone mass.
TLDR
Two distinct options for the management of osteoporosis lead to increases in BMD by opposite mechanisms of action on bone remodeling.
Current issues in the presentation of asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism: proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop.
TLDR
This report summarizes data on traditional and nontraditional manifestations of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) that have been published since the last International Workshop on PHPT and concludes it is not possible to predict which patients with neuropsychological complaints or cognitive issues will improve after successful parathyroid surgery.
Hashimoto's encephalopathy: systematic review of the literature and an additional case.
TLDR
A representative case report is presented, along with a comprehensive review of current literature, about Hashimoto's encephalopathy, which is more common in women and is associated with autoimmune antithyroid antibodies.
Primary hyperparathyroidism: review and recommendations on evaluation, diagnosis, and management. A Canadian and international consensus
TLDR
The current state of the art in the diagnosis and management ofPHPT is presented and the Canadian Position paper on PHPT is updated and an overview of the impact of PHPT on the skeleton and other target organs is presented.
Normocalcemic versus Hypercalcemic Primary Hyperparathyroidism: More Stone than Bone?
TLDR
The data confirms a high prevalence of urolithiasis in normocalcemic primary hyperparathyroidism, but with the preservation of cortical bone, and supports the hypothesis that this disease is not an idle condition and needs treatment.
Metabolic Syndrome and Central Fat Distribution Are Related to Lower Serum Osteocalcin Concentrations
TLDR
It is shown that lower serum osteocalcin is associated with the presence of MS and that osteoccin is inversely associated with BMI, WC, FPG and SBP, suggesting that osteocalin plays a part in the development of MS.
Normocalcemic primary hyperparathyroidism in clinical practice: an indolent condition or a silent threat?
TLDR
Data from this study suggest that NPHPT has a diverse phenotypic presentation, implying that this may not be an "indolent" disease.
Vitamin D deficiency: A global perspective.
TLDR
There is accumulating evidence of the frequent occurrence of subclinical vitamin D deficiency, especially in elderly people, and the prevalence of hypovitaminosis D is considerable even in low latitudes and should be taken into account in the evaluation of postmenopausal and male osteoporosis.
Marked improvement in bone mass after parathyroidectomy in osteitis fibrosa cystica
TLDR
Departments of Medicine (C.A.B.) and Pharmacology (J.P.S., J.M.K.), Curitiba, Parana, Brazil; and the Endocrine Unit, Hospital dos Servidores do Estado, Brazil are represented.
Recommendations of the Brazilian Society of Endocrinology and Metabology (SBEM) for the diagnosis and treatment of hypovitaminosis D.
TLDR
