OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to examine serum markers of bone turnover at 6 and 18 months after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. PARTICIPANTS Ten women and 10 men [body mass index (BMI), 50.2 +/- 8.4 kg/m(2)] were studied at 6 months; 10 women and nine men (BMI, 47.2 +/- 6.6 kg/m(2)) were studied at 18 months after surgery. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Serum osteocalcin, bone specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP), N-telopeptide of type 1 collagen (NTX), PTH, 25-hydroxy vitamin D, and leptin… CONTINUE READING
