HYPERTHYREODIZM INDUCED OSTEOPOROSIS – ASPECTS OF COMORBIDITY

M. Zodelava, N. Tskhovrebashvili, T. Mamaladze

Abstract


Despite that the linkage between thyroid gland and osteoporosis, revealed long time ago, the problem is still not losing a high priority and   remains the matter of intensive research. Two groups of women were examined. I group – 17 premenopausal women with hyperthyroidism age of 20 - 40 years; II group – 18 postmenopausal women with hyperthyroidism age of 45 - 60 years Women with hyperthyroidism were medicated with thyrozol (20 to 30µg/day) for two years. From a preliminary examination it appears that both, young and older hyperthyroid patients showed a significantly decreased BMD compared with control group. However, the risk of osteoporosis is even greater for women who are already postmenopausal. It is assured, that in patients with hyper thyreodizm induced osteoporosis bone mass may be revered with treatment of thyroid disease. Those who show evidence of decreased BMD should receive calcium-rich food and prescriptions of osteo therapeutics when deemed necessary.
