Bone mineral density (BMD) is affected in young adults with multiple sclerosis (MS), which leads to disabling disease. We aimed to show changes that were independent of immobilization by measuring BMD and laboratory markers of bone metabolism in mobile MS patients. We compared a total of 52 premenopausal female patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) to 41 women of similar age who had no risk factors for osteoporosis. The lumbar and femur BMD were measured using the dual… CONTINUE READING
