The role of FSH and TSH in bone loss and its clinical relevance.

Abstract

Osteoporosis, a global health problem, is now frequently recognized to be secondary to alterations in the pituitary-bone axis. This review examines the current evidence for how dysregulation of the pituitary-bone axis leads to osteoporotic bone loss. Specifically, perimenopausal bone loss in the context of follicle-stimulating hormone action, and hyperthyroid bone loss in the context of thyroid-stimulating hormone action are explored. From the reviewed scientific findings, recommendations for early diagnosis and better clinical management of bone loss are made.
