Objective: Expansion of bone marrow, accumulation of iron, growth failure and delayed puberty affect bone health in thalassemia; data on bone density and geometry are scarce. Our objective was to assess bone density (by Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry, DXA) and geometry (by peripheral quantitative computed tomography, pQCT) in children with thalassemia major.Methods: Children with thalassemia were recruited from a hematology clinic in Pune (India) (Mean...

Objective: Our earlier study using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry had shown that longer duration of type 1 diabetes (T1DM) in children was associated with small and slender bones. The objective of this study was to assess bone geometry in children and adolescents with T1DM using a pQCT.Methods: We studied 69 children (8.3 to 18.7 years of age, 29 boys) with T1DM. Anthropometry and biochemical assessments (glycosylated Hb (HbA1c), Vitamin D and PTH) wer...
