Introduction: Acromegalic osteopathy is an emerging complication characterized by high risk for vertebral fractures (VFS), whereas bone mineral density (BMD) may not be useful to predict the risk. Recent studies have reported that increased advenced glycation end products (AGEs) are associated with bone fragility. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between AGEs and VFs in patients with acromegaly.Study design: Cross-sectionalPat...
