Bone Loss - adominal fat - 50084

Abdominal fat mass in adults was inversely associated with bone mass at the femur and spine in women. For a given body weight, those with higher fat mass near the abdomen has a lower bone mineral density. Cytokines are involved in the balance between formation and resorption. Centrally located body fat is more metabolically active than fat located elsewhere in the body as it releases a variety of pro-inflammatory cytokines that cause local inflammation. Systemic inflammation can increase osteoclast formation, the cells responsible for bone resorption. Abdominal fat mass was associated with lower serum concentrations of osteocalcin.

Bone Loss - calcium, inulin, isoflavones, vitamin d - 49713

Calcium (500 mg/d), vit D (300 IU/d), inulin (3 g/d) and soy isoflavones (40 mg/d) improved calcium absorption; reduced parathormone levels; increased of IGF1 levels and reduced CTx. The improvement of calcium absorption was likely due to the presence of inulin in supplementation with the positive effects on bone biomarkers probably do to the soy isoflavone supplementation. Calcium supplementation should result in calciuria between 200 and 250 mg/d with overall improvement of bone biomarkers. Calcium supplementation should not bring daily calciuria to levels exceeding 250 mg/d in women (300 mg/d in men).

Bone Loss - bisphosphonate - 49827

Bisphosphonate (nitrogen) (N-BP) use in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis can reduce both CoQ10 and gamma tocopherol levels, more severely in those receiving intravenous forms of N-BP. Those on N-BP, especially with IV use, are candidates for assessment of CoQ10 and gamma-tocopherol and possible supplementation. Those on both statins and N-BP medications may be at enhanced risk of CoQ10 deficiency and the clinical consequences and should be monitored for CoQ10 and gamma-tocopherol levels.
