Although controversies exist on the possible adverse effect of T4 on bone mass, most studies reported bone loss in estrogen-deprived postmenopausal women taking suppressive doses of T4. We prospectively studied 46 postmenopausal women with carcinoma of thyroid for 2 yr to evaluate the rate of bone loss and assess whether calcium supplementation with or without intranasal calcitonin was able to decrease the rate of bone loss. All patients were receiving a stable dose of L-T4 (170 +/- 60… Expand
