The aim of this study was to measure bone mineral density (BMD) in healthy people and examine the influence of age, anthropometry, and postmenopause on calculated bone mineral apparent density (BMAD). The study included 541 healthy subjects (249 men and 292 women), aged 20 to 79 years. Anthropometric measurements included height, weight, and body mass index(More)
The relationship of homocysteine (Hcy), folate and vitamin B12 with bone mineral density (BMD) has been studied in various populations but still remains inconsistent. The aim of this study was to test whether the levels of plasma Hcy, serum and red blood cell folate, and vitamin B12 are related to BMD in the group of adult Croatian women regardless of(More)
Ultrasound bone measurement in healthy Croatian children and adolescents has been evaluated. Relationships between pubertal status, anthropometry, nutrition, and physical activity with ultrasound bone parameter were analyzed. A total number of 501 children and adolescents of both sexes participated in the study. There were 244 prepubertal children (120 boys(More)
ZIELE: Obwohl es als ein Merkmal entzündlich-rheumatischer Erkrankungen angesehen wird, gibt es viel Kontroverse über die niedrige Knochenmasse bei Patienten mit psoriatischer Arthritis. Das Ziel dieser Querschnittsstudie war es, die Knochenmineraldichte bei Patienten mit psoriatischer Arthritis zu analysieren, sowie ihre mögliche Verbindung mit einigen(More)
The aim of this study was to analyse the quality of life in osteoporotic patients with hip fracture and those without fractures. The study included postmenopausal women, 35 with hip fracture and 33 without fractures. The control group included 44 age-matched healthy women. Osteoporosis Quality of Life Questionnaire was used to assess the health-related(More)
In ankylosing spondylitis, inflammatory activity probably plays a key role in the pathophysiology of bone loss. The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship of bone mineral density (BMD) at the lumbar spine and hip region with some measures of disease activity and functional ability in patients with ankylosing spondylitis. In 80 patients with(More)
AIM To determine the prevalence of radiographic osteoarthritis on five joint groups in an urban population sample of 306 women and 304 men over the age of 45 and to assess the influence of some risk factors on osteoarthritis. The validity of concept of generalized osteoarthritis was also examined by analyzing the association of osteoarthritis on different(More)
The objective was to investigate the association of nutrients and lifestyle modifiers with bone mineral density (BMD) and weight and/or body mass index (BMI) in 120 healthy Croatian postmenopausal women. The hip and spine BMD was assessed by Lunar Prodigy (GE Medical Systems). Nutrient assessment from 3-day records was analyzed using the US Department of(More)
AIMS Disturbances in mineral and bone metabolism are common in patients with chronic kidney disease. The purpose of this follow-up study was to compare the change of bone mineral density in patients with chronic kidney disease to those who have received the renal transplant. METHODS The study included 47 children and adolescents: 16 with mild to moderate(More)
