[Disturbances of the bone metabolism in type 1 diabetic patients]

KERÉNYI ZSUZSA, TAMÁS GYULA, TABÁK Gy. Ádám, SPEIZER SZABINA, SPEER Gábor, MÉSZÁROS SZILVIA, LAKATOS Péter, HORVÁTH CSABA

[AIMS - Because of contradictory data in literature our aim was to study bone metabolic disturbances and their correlates with anthropometric and metabolic parameters in type 1 diabetic patients (T1DM). Since quantitative bone ultrasound (QUS) measures bone qualities different from BMD, and it has only been scarcely investigated in T1DM, our aim was to describe covariates of QUS parameters. PATIENTS AND METHODS - Osteodensitometry was performed (lumbal spine, femur neck - DEXA; calcaneal... tovább »

[Higher bone fracture prevalence in postmenopausal pollen allergic women]

FERENCZ VIKTÓRIA, MÉSZÁROS SZILVIA, CSUPOR EMŐKE, TÓTH EDIT, BORS Katalin, FALUS ANDRÁS, HORVÁTH CSABA

[Our aim was to investigate whether pollen allergy can affect bone mass and fractures in postmenopausal women. A total of 125 postmenopausal pollen allergic women (mean age 61.26 years) were split into four groups: treated neither with H1 histamine receptor (H1R) antagonist nor with inhaled corticosteroid (n=43), treated only with H1R antagonist (n=53), treated both with H1R antagonist and inhaled corticosteroid (n=17), treated only with inhaled corticosteroid (n=12) for at least five years,... tovább »

[The influence of menopause-related obesity and related changes of body fat distribution on the severity of sleep apnea]

GYŐRFI MÁRIA, SANDRA SÁNDOR, SZAKÁCS ZOLTÁN

[INTRODUCTION - The menopause is associated with an enhanced risk of obesity. During the postmenopausal period changes in the distribution of body fat lead to a variety of disorders. Obesity is among the major risk factors for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS). The prevalence of OSAS increases after the menopause. This study was intended to explore the relationship between the severity of sleep apnea and the quantity, as well as the distribution of body fat in postmenopausal women with... tovább »

[The increase of fracture risk in type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus]

HULLÓ DANIELLA

[Studies in the last couple of years found more and more convincing evidence about the fact that impaired glucose metabolism leads to structural changes in the skeletal system leading toward osteoporosis. While patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus have decreased bone density, measurement showed increased bone mineral density in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Despite these differences, risk of vertebral and nonvertebral fractures is increased in both groups of diabetic patients.... tovább »
