To assess whether leptin is an independent predictor of bone mineral density (BMD) in postmenopausal women, we studied the relationships of BMD to serum leptin, 25(OH)D, 1,25(OH)(2)D, PTH, E2, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, GH, IGF-I, creatinine clearance, calcium intake, fat mass, and lean mass in 107 women aged 50-90 yr. We also related serum leptin to markers of bone formation [serum bone alkaline phosphatase and osteocalcin (OC)] and resorption (urine C-telopeptide of type I collagen). In… CONTINUE READING
