  • Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

    Bone growth, modelling and remodelling There are 206 bones in the human body (not including the minute bones of the ear).[] Osteopenia and osteoporosis are two disorders caracterized by bone density loss. Osteopenia has no recognizable symptoms.[] Osteopenia refers to low bone mass or density. Osteoporosis is a more serious loss of bone density, which weakens the bones.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    The goals of conventional therapy included the absence of symptoms attributable to glycosuria or hyperglycemia; the absence of ketonuria; the maintenance of normal growth,[] Pituitary gland disorders can disrupt hormone production and normal functioning in other endocrine glands and in many body systems.[] Blood glucose levels increase in many people in the early morning hours because of the normal release of hormones (growth hormone and cortisol ), a reaction called the dawn[]

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

    A lack of testosterone causes symptoms like breast growth, a small penis, and less facial and body hair than normal.[] The percentage of osteopenia/osteoporosis in subjects with 25-hydroxyvitamin D deficiency was higher with respect to subjects with normal 25-hydroxyvitamin D and was not related[] […] and osteoporosis, tumors (breast and germ cells), systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjögren syndrome.

    […] part to keep the calcium levels normal.[] This loss of calcium from the bones can lead to weak, brittle bones (osteopenia and osteoporosis) and bone fractures.[] In most cases, a benign (noncancerous) growth called an adenoma forms on a single parathyroid gland and causes it to become overactive.[]

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    Turner syndrome stunts normal body growth and inhibits normal changes that typically result during puberty as a child enters adulthood.[] Gonadal failure, sterility, and growth failure are common, as well as osteopenia and osteoporosis.[] A small proportion also had osteopenia, osteoporosis, or hypercalciuria.[]
