Hyperprolactinemia may lead to bone loss, both due to hypogonadism and other hormonal disturbances.Aim: Aim of the study was the analysis of influences of hormonal profiles associated with hyperprolactinemia on bone mineral density (BMD) and bone turnover in women with hyperprolactinemia of various origin. The subjects were 32 patients with prolactinoma, 43 ones with functional hyperprolactinemia and 29 healthy controls. All of them were studied BMD (lum...

Acromegaly is a rare disease, caused by an excessive secretion of growth hormone (GH), and consequently the insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Patients with acromegaly have an increased risk of fractures, which might be correlated with insufficient quality of bone. It is known that use of FRAX in acromegaly is not validated, however we do not have other useful tools to assess real risk for fractures. The new valuable tool in the assessment of bone structure is the trabecula...
