Effects of levothyroxine on bone mineral density, muscle force, and bone turnover markers: a cohort study.

Abstract

CONTEXT Previous studies of the effects of levothyroxine (LT(4)) therapy on bone and bone metabolism have provided conflicting results. OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the potential effects and dose-response relationship of LT(4) therapy on bone mineral density (BMD) as well as bone and muscle strength. DESIGN AND SETTING We conducted a prospective… (More)
