Hyperthyroid patients exhibit accelerated bone loss by increased bone turnover, and normalization of thyroid function is associated with a significant attenuation of increased bone turnover, followed by an increase in bone mineral density. However, of patients with Graves' disease (GD) maintained on antithyroid drug (ATD) treatment, some exhibit persistent(More)
Diabetic bone disease is characterized by low bone turnover resulting from impaired secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH). However, it was suggested that the difference in duration of hemodialysis (HD) therapy and age of patients between HD patients with and without diabetes mellitus (DM) may be responsible for a significant reduction in serum intact PTH(More)
OBJECTIVE Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO), resulting from the inflammation of retro-orbital tissue, is one of the major complications of Graves' disease (GD). We investigated the clinical usefulness of the measurement of retinal blood flow (RBF) in the evaluation of GO and its activity. MEASUREMENT RBF was quantitated by pulsed Doppler mode at just below the(More)
