Occurrence of reduced BMD among adolescent girls and young women due to certain specific oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea (anorexia nervosa, excessive sport or ballet, etc.) is well known. However the prevalence of osteopenia among 16-18 years old girls with the cycle disorders mentioned above--caused by "pure" hypothalamo-pituitary-ovarian insufficiency--is not yet sufficiently examined. The hormonal (FSH, LH, prolactin, LH/FSH, estradiol. testosterone, progesterone) and ion (Ca++,PO4(3-),Na+,K… Expand
Significant effects of mild endogenous hormonal changes in humans: considerations for low-dose testing.
TLDR
Information stemming from clinical observations leads to the concept of "no threshold" within the endocrine system and thus illustrates the importance of considering low-dose testing for chemicals that interfere with hormonal activity, and urges attention to more sensitive, less visible end points such as osteoporosis, increased risk for cardiovascular disease, or cognitive changes.
