Single-photon absorptiometry was used to assess forearm bone mineral content (BMC) at a proximal site (PBMC) and at a more distal site (DBMC) of the non-dominant distal forearm in 20 children and adolescent females taking high doses of L-thyroxine (120 micrograms/m2/day) for a period of 6-96 months for endemic goiter, Hashimoto's thyroiditis or thyroid… CONTINUE READING
