To investigate the relationship between ionized calcium and disease activity, parameters of bone metabolism and bone mineral density (BMD) at the lumbar spine (BMD-LS) and the femoral neck (BMD-FN) measured by dual X-ray absorptiometry in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In 146 patients with RA, the following parameters were investigated: serum levels of ionized calcium, total calcium, vitamin D metabolites 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25D3) and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25D3), intact parathyroid hormone… CONTINUE READING
