Background: Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) might influence bone mineral density (BMD) through its regulation of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodthyronine (T3). Direct effect of TSH on bone turnover, mediated through its receptors on both osteoblast and osteoclast precursors, has been suggested. We wanted to explore the relationship between serum TSH, fT4 and BMD in women with different TSH levels after a long-term observation of thyroid function and bone statu...
