Turner syndrome (TS) is a common genetic disorder. TS-phenotype includes short stature, gonadal dysgenesis, cardiac and kidney malformations, low bone mineral density (low-BMD) and thyroiditis. TS-phenotype varies from patient to patient and the cause is not clear, the genomic background may be an important contributor for this variability. Our aim was to identify the association of specific single nucleotide variants in the PTPN22, VDR, KL, and CYP27B1 genes and vitamin D-metabolism, heart malformation, renal malformation, thyroiditis, and low-BMD in 61 Mexican TS-patients...

Reduced bone mineral density (BMD) in Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (FHA) is mainly related to hypoestrogenism, but other hormonal derangement (reduced conversion of T4-T3 and GH resistance) can play a role. These hormones are involved in antioxidant systems regulation. We evaluated the impact of hormonal alterations, with special focus on low T3 and IGF-1 levels, on antioxidant systems as a link with osteoporosis in FHA. Forty-three FHA patients, 15-34 years, with BMI range 17.3-23.4 kg/m2 , were divided in 2 groups according to fT3 levels; group A (n=22), low fT3 (<2...

Beyond vitamin D (VD) effect on bone homeostasis, numerous physiological functions in human health have been described for this versatile prohormone. In 2016, 95% of the world's population lived in areas where annual mean ambient particulate matter (<2.5 μm) levels exceeded the World Health Organization guideline value (Shaddick et al., 2018). On the other hand, industries disperse thousands of chemicals continually into the environment. Further, considerable fraction of populations are exposed to tobacco smoke...

A genetic disorder should be suspected in patients with hypercalcemia, notably those who are young; have family members with hypercalcemia; or have had a tumor of the endocrine pancreas, thyroid, pituitary, adrenal gland, or jaw bone. All forms of hypercalcemia should be interpreted according to the serum level of parathyroid hormone (PTH). Genetic forms are thus classified as related or unrelated to a parathyroid gland disorder. When the PTH level is elevated or is not depressed despite the hypercalcemia, findings that suggest family history of hypercalcemia due to a genetic cause include syndromic manifestations in the patient or family members, parathyroid cancer (either suspected before surgery or confirmed during parathyroidectomy), multiple or recurrent parathyroid tumors, a family history of primary hyperparathyroidism, and the onset of primary hyperthyroidism before 50 years of age...

Social and health care provision have led to substantial increases in life expectancy. In the UK this has become higher than 80 years with an even greater proportional increase in those aged 85 years and over. The different life stages give rise to important nutritional challenges and recent reductions in milk consumption have led to sub-optimal intakes of calcium by teenage females in particular when bone growth is at its maximum and of iodine during pregnancy needed to ensure that supply/production of thyroid hormones to the foetus is adequate...

The bone remodelling cycle replaces old and damaged bone and is a highly regulated, lifelong process essential for preserving bone integrity and maintaining mineral homeostasis. During the bone remodelling cycle, osteoclastic resorption is tightly coupled to osteoblastic bone formation. The remodelling cycle occurs within the basic multicellular unit and comprises five co-ordinated steps; activation, resorption, reversal, formation and termination. These steps occur simultaneously but asynchronously at multiple different locations within the skeleton...

Antiseizure medications and dietary therapies have associated effects on the endocrine system. We provided an overview of the relationship between epilepsy treatment and bone health in children with epilepsy. Additionally, we discussed the effects of epilepsy treatment on other endocrine systems including thyroid function, growth, reproduction, and weight. The effect of epilepsy on bone health is multifactorial; there are direct and indirect effects of medication and dietary treatments as well as a decrease in physical activity, decreased sunlight exposure, decreased vitamin D levels, and additional comorbidities...

The main role of vitamin D is regulating bone metabolism and calcium and phosphorus homeostasis. Over the past few decades, the importance of vitamin D in non-skeletal actions has been studied, including the role of vitamin D in autoimmune diseases, metabolic syndromes, cardiovascular disease, cancers, and all-cause mortality. Recent evidence has demonstrated an association between low vitamin D status and autoimmune thyroid diseases such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' disease, and impaired vitamin D signaling has been reported in thyroid cancers...
