Skeletal fragility, lower bone strength evident in women with celiac disease

April 21, 2015

Premenopausal women with celiac disease may be more likely to have lower bone strength, even with sufficient levels of calcium, vitamin D and parathyroid hormone, according to research in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

In a case-control study, researchers linked biomechanical deficits to abnormalities in trabecular volumetric bone mineral density and microarchitecture, despite sufficient calcium, 25-hydroxyvitamin D and normal parathyroid hormone levels at the time of evaluation.
