Serum levels of osteocalcin and type I procollagen in children with celiac disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Bone metabolism may be disturbed in children with celiac disease. METHODS Two markers of bone turnover were used: the level of osteocalcin (BGP) and the level of carboxylterminal peptide of type I procollagen (PICP).
