Obese young adults exhibit lower total and lower free serum 25-hydroxycholecalciferol in a randomized vitamin D intervention

Holmlund-Suila Elisa , Pekkinen Minna , Ivaska Kaisa K. , Andersson Sture , Makitie Outi , Viljakainen Heli

Objective: Although obesity is a risk factor for vitamin D insufficiency, its impact on vitamin D-binding protein (DBP) concentration, and thereby possibly also on free 25OHD, is less well known. Our aim was to compare total and free serum 25OHD, and DBP concentrations between obese and normal-weight young adults at baseline, and their responses to cholecalciferol supplementation.Design: A 12 weeks’ randomized, double-blinded clinical trial.<p c...

Food restriction harms bone properties of prepubertal, but not of young adult or elderly rats

Gabriele Biffe Bruna , Ana da Silva Karina , Fabricio Victor , Goncalves Leandroc Dias , Okino Nonaka Keico

In this study, the effect of food restriction of 30% in calorie intake on femurs of rats of different ages was investigated. Male Rattus novegicus albinus rats, Holtzman lineage, aged 38 days, 4 and 16 months were used. The animals were divided into six groups (n=8–10 per group), three being control groups (C38, C4 and C16) and three groups on restricted diet (R38, R4 on R16). The restricted animals were submitted to food restriction of 30% being fed wit...

Caffeine at moderate dose did not affect the skeletal system of rats with streptozotocin-induced metabolic disorders

Folwarczna Joanna , Janas Aleksandra , Cegiela Urszula , Pytlik Maria , Sliwinski Leszek , Matejczyk Magdalena , Nowacka Anna , Rudy Karolina , Krivošikova Zora , Štefikova Kornelia , Gajdoš Martin

Diabetes leads to development of osteoporosis. Experimental type 1 diabetes may be induced by a single dose of streptozotocin (STZ), and nicotinamide (NA) administered 15 min before STZ dose-dependently protects against the STZ action. Coffee drinking, apart of its health benefits, is taken into consideration as an osteoporosis risk factor. Data from human and experimental studies on coffee and caffeine effects on the skeletal system are inconsistent. For example, although oth...

Vitamin D from the marine inuit diet and markers of inflammation – a population-based survey in Greenland

Schaebel Louise , Bonefeld-Jorgensen Eva , Laurberg Peter , Vestergaard Henrik , Andersen Stig

Background: The traditional Inuit diet in Greenland consists mainly of fish and marine mammals. The marine diet is an important source for vitamin D in Greenland. Vitamin D has anti-inflammatory capacity but markers of inflammation were high in Inuit with a high intake of marine food items. Yet, the effect of vitamin D on inflammation in Inuit remains unsettled.Objectives: To investigate the association between vitamin D and markers of inflammation in a ...

Association between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and total testosterone levels in Korean adult men

Ung Yun Chul , Kim Jin Young , Yeon Yu Byung

Background: There have been many studies on the association between vitamin D and testosterone in the world. But it has not been fully clarified. Furthermore, data in Korean men is limited. This study aimed to determine the association between vitamin D and testosterone levels in korean men.Methods: This cross sectional study analyzed serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and total testosterone in 365 Korean men over 25 years of age who visited a local uni...

Association between the sideways fall fractures and body mass index in patients from a public Mexican hospital

Pacheco-Pantoja Elda , Garcia-Ojeda Marycruz , Ramos-Pereyra Viridiana , Sanchez-de-la-Cruz Cindy , Diaz-Diaz Cristel , Osorio-Merito Nallely

The body mass index has been regarded as a risk predictor factor for fractures, and in some prospective cohort studies it has been suggested that obesity could be a protective factor for hip fractures in adults.The present study aimed to investigate whether body mass index is related to the fracture risk when individuals had sideways falls in Mexican patients. We analyzed files from 448 patients, which checked in at Orthopedics and Traumatology Service i...

Association of bone mineral density, life style and diet of korean middle aged-men

Yum Keun-Sang , Song Sang-Wook

Background: Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic disease of bone and constitutes one of the most important major public health problems not only in women but also in men. This cross-sectional study examined the association of lifestyle and nutritional factors with bone mineral density (BMD) in 88 Korean middle-aged men.Methods: Physical measurement, smoking habits, alcohol consumption, physical activity and nutritional analysis were assessed from an...

Association between lean mass and dietary protein intake in postmenopausal women

Povoroznyuk Vladyslav , Dzerovych Nataliia , Povorooznyuk Roksolana

The aim of the study was to evaluate the appendicular lean mass depending on the dietary protein intake in the Ukrainian postmenopausal women.Materials and methods: The study involved 63 women aged 52–89 years, who, depending on their ages, were divided into groups: 52–59 years (n=9), 60–69 years (n=26), 70–79 years (n=21), 80–89 years (n=7). To assess the dietary habits of women, we used the t...

Effects of clinically relevant doses of vitamin A on bone in mice

Lionikaite Vikte , Gustafsson Karin , Westerlund Anna , Koskela Antti , Tukkanen Juha , Conaway H Herschel , Ohlsson Claes , Henning Petra , Lerner Ulf

Excess vitamin A has been associated with decreased cortical bone thickness and increased fracture risk. While most studies in rodents have been done using very high doses of vitamin A for a few days, we here investigate how clinically relevant doses of vitamin A, calculated from the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) in humans, affects the bone phenotype in mice after longer exposure.C57BL/6 mice were fed either a control diet (15 IU/g retinyl acetate), ...

Waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) and coronary artery calcification

Song Sang-Wook , Kim Jeoung-Ah , Kang Sung-Goo , Yum Keun Sang

Background: Many studies have demonstrated that waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) correlates with risk factors of coronary artery disease (CAD) better, than the body mass index (BMI). Coronary artery calcification (CAC) is an independent risk factor of atherosclerotic heart disease. However, the association between WHtR and coronary artery calcification scores (CACS) still need to be elucidated. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between WHtR and CACS in ...

The efficiency of fish scale-derived calcium supplementation on the prevention of bone loss in lactating rats

Suntornsaratoon Panan , Pon-On Weeraphat , Krishnamra Nateetip , Charoenphandhu Narattaphol

Breastfeeding leads to marked trabecular bone loss as a result of high osteoclast- and osteocyte-mediated bone resorption. It has long been postulated that adequate dietary calcium intake prevents maternal bone loss, nevertheless, whether calcium supplement alleviates maternal bone mechanical property need to be investigated. Herein, we hypothesized that calcium supplement from natural sources could alleviate bone loss and improve mechanical property in lactating rats. During ...

Is bone equally responsive to calcium and vitamin D intake from food vs supplements? Use of 41Calcium tracer kinetic model

Van Loan Marta , Hillegonds Darren , Rogers Tara , Garrod Marjorie , Peerson Janet , Gertz Erik , Demmer Elieke , Buchholz Bruce

Few interventions directly compare equivalent calcium and vitamin D from dairy vs supplements on the same bone outcomes.Objectives and Methods: Using 41Ca tracer techniques, determine if 4 servings/d of dairy foods reduces Ca excretion more than an equivalent amount of Ca and vitamin D from supplements. Secondary objective was to evaluate the time course for change in Ca excretion.Design: In this crossover trial, postmen...
