The relationship between bone health and body composition profile in patients with galactose metabolic disorders: implications for practice

Doulgeraki Artemis , Monopolis Ioannis , Deligianni Domna , Kalogerakou Maria , Schulpis Kleopatra

Objectives: To evaluate bone health and its possible correlations to body composition parameters in young patients with galactose metabolic disorders, aiming to suggest appropriate lifestyle interventions.Methods: We studied 22 patients, aged 5–16 years with galactose metabolic disorders, detected by neonatal screening. Fourteen suffered from classic galactosemia and eight from other galactose metabolic disorders (i.e. epimerase or galactokinase def...

Bone status and body composition analysis in young patients with phenylketonuria and hyperphenylalaninemia

Doulgeraki Artemis , Monopolis Ioannis , Skarpalezou Astrinia , Theodosiadou Areti , Schulpis Kleopatra

Objectives: To evaluate bone status and body composition in patients with phenylketonuria and hyperphenylalaninemia.Methods: Eighty patients (48 with phenylketonuria and 32 with hyperphenylalaninemia), aged 5–18 years, early-diagnosed, underwent dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Bone mineral density (lumbar spine and total body), bone strength (bone mineral content:lean tissue mass ratio), lean tissue mass, body fat percentage, and fat mass index we...

History of meconium ileus affects bone health and body composition in young patients with cystic fibrosis

Doulgeraki Artemis , Petrocheilou Argyri , Chrousos George , Petrocheilou Glykeria , Monopolis Ioannis , Doudounakis Stavros-Eleftherios , Kaditis Athanasios

Objective: Growth of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and meconium ileus is frequently compromised. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate body composition in this particular group of patients. We hypothesized that history of meconium ileus could predict suboptimal growth, bone, muscle and fat mass, irrespective of other prognostic factors for CF.Methods: CF subjects were investigated over a 3-year period. Their medical records were reviewed...

Body composition profile of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy living in a country with the obesity epidemic

Doulgeraki Artemis , Katsalouli Marina , Petrocheilou Glykeria , Paspati Ioanna , Athanasopoulou Helen , Monopolis Ioannis

Objectives: To evaluate bone health and body composition in Greek patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), hypothesizing that prepubertal patients would not be fatter than controls, given the Greek obesity epidemic. Greece ranks among the first countries in overweight and obesity prevalence globally; 30 and 13% of childhood population respectively.Methods: Cross-sectional study, conducted at the Greek Institute of Child Health (Athens) over a 2-y...
