Serum uric acid is associated with lumbar spine bone mineral density in healthy Chinese males older than 50 years.

We aimed to investigate the association of serum uric acid (UA) levels with bone mineral density (BMD) at all skeletal sites in healthy Chinese males ...

Higher Serum Uric Acid Is Associated with Higher Bone Mineral Density in Chinese Men with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
Accumulating evidence suggests that oxidative stress is associated with osteoporosis. Serum uric acid (UA) is a strong endogenous antioxidant. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between the serum UA and BMD in Chinese men with T2DM. In this

Bone mineral density is not associated with musculoskeletal pain in postmenopausal Korean women aged ≥50 years.
Although many studies reported improvement of back pain after osteoporosis treatment, there is insufficient evidence to determine whether osteoporosis is painful. We investigated whether bone mineral density correlated with musculoskeletal pain in po

Serum Sema4D levels are associated with lumbar spine bone mineral density and bone turnover markers in patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis.
To investigate the association of serum semaphorin 4D (Sema4D) levels with lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD) and bone turnover markers in patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis (PO). Lumbar spine BMD was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorpt

Elevated Serum Uric Acid Is Associated with Greater Bone Mineral Density and Skeletal Muscle Mass in Middle-Aged and Older Adults.
Previous studies have suggested a positive link between serum uric acid (UA) and bone mineral density (BMD). In this study, we re-examined the association between UA and BMD and further explored whether this was mediated by skeletal muscle mass in a

Long-term effects of antihypertensive medications on bone mineral density in men older than 55 years.
In this study, we investigated the effects of long-term antihypertensive treatment with calcium channel blockers or beta blockers on the bone mineral density of maxilla, as determined by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT).

Factors associated with bone mineral density in healthy African women.
There is a paucity of normative bone mineral density (BMD) data in healthy African women. Baseline total hip and lumbar spine BMD was measured in premenopausal women. BMD distribution was comparable to that of a reference population and was impacted

Relationship between serum uric Acid and bone mineral density in the general population and in rats with experimental hyperuricemia.
Higher serum uric acid concentrations have been associated with higher bone mineral density (BMD) in observational studies of older men and perimenopausal or postmenopausal women, prompting speculation of a potential protective effect of uric acid on

Can lumbar spine bone mineral density predict readmission in denosumab-treated patients with chronic kidney disease?
This study investigated whether bone mineral density (BMD) affects readmission risk in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD) who received denosumab therapy. The study design was a retrospective case review of patients with CKD. Baseline age, se

Serum gamma-glutamyl transferase is associated with the elevated uric acid levels in normotensive Chinese adults.
Although both serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and uric acid are correlated with hypertension, studies on the association between serum GGT and uric acid in normotensive individuals are rare. In this study, we tried to reveal this relationship i

Uric acid is associated with vascular dementia in Chinese population.
Mounting evidence suggests that oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of vascular dementia (VD). Uric acid (UA) has long been implicated as a critical cause of cardiovascular disease. Nevertheless, UA was also expected to play an important
