Introduction: Lactose intolerance itself is linked with lower peak bone mass (PBM) and with decreased bone mineral density (BMD) which may decrease further with lactose intolerance associated comorbidities. The aim of our study was to examine how bone metabolic parameters are affected (change of bone metabolism markers, BMD and frequency of fractures) in lactose intolerance which was accompanied by previously diagnosed hyperlipidemia or by hypothyroidism.<p class="abstext"...

Introduction: Altered sensitivity against glucocorticoids is partly influenced by polymorphisms (SNP) of the glucocorticoid receptor gene (GR). The aim of the present study was to extend our earlier study by inclusion and evaluation the role of the BclI and A3669G polymorphisms of the GR in patients with hormonally inactive adrenal adenomas.Description of methods: This is a retrospective, single-centre genetic association study The study included 99 pati...
