Censani Marisa , Stein Emily , Shane Elizabeth , Oberfield Sharon , McMahon Donald , Lerner Shulamit , Fennoy Ilene

Objectives: Obese adults commonly have vitamin D deficiency and secondary hyperparathyroidism prior to bariatric surgery. Whether similar metabolic abnormalities exist in morbidly obese adolescents is not known. This study investigated the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and evaluated the relationship between vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH) in morbidly obese adolescents undergoing evaluation for bariatric surgery.Methods: A cross-sectional stu...

Patients with osteoporosis require treatment with therapies that reduce the risk of fracture which at the spine is significantly influenced by bone microarchitecture. Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) and dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) allow measurement of bone mineral density (BMD), a known indicator of fracture risk. Trabecular bone score (TBS) is a novel gray-level measurement derived from spine DXA image texture that is related to microarchitecture and associates wit...

Non-pharmacologic approaches to preserve or increase BMD include whole body vibration (WBV). A meta-analysis and one-year randomized trial concluded that WBV has no effect on BMD in older women; however, previous trials were relatively brief and did not include a sham control group. Therefore, we conducted the Vibration to Improve Bone in Elderly Subjects (‘VIBES’) trial, a randomized, sham-controlled trial of 10 min of daily WBV (0.3 g at 30 Hz) in seniors recruited...
