Abstract Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with many acute and chronic diseases of immense importance. This chapter briefly considers data relating vitamin D status to immune function, cancer, muscle function and falls, and cardiovascular disease. Despite extensive in vitro, animal, and human studies, the role of vitamin D deficiency in these, and potentially multiple other nonskeletal diseases, remains unclear. This uncertainty is in no small part the result of inadequate standardization...

Summary This cross-sectional study assessed cortical bone properties via impact microindentation in adults with normoglycemia, prediabetes, and early-stage T2D. Bone material strength index was stable across the glycemia categories in whites but it declined in blacks. Blacks may be more susceptible than whites to impaired cortical bone properties in early diabetes.

Summary Few studies have examined knowledge and perceptions of osteoporosis among Caribbean Latino adults. Confusion regarding the term osteoporosis was noted. Doctors were viewed as trusted sources of health information, although descriptions of a paradoxical relationship emerged. This study can be used to inform culturally tailored interventions for osteoporosis prevention.

Summary Background & aims Whether vitamin D affects lipid profile and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk is controversial. We evaluated the effect of oral daily vitamin D supplementation on lipid profile and CVD risk in patients with well-controlled type 2 diabetes. Methods Secondary analysis in the vitamin D for established type 2 diabetes (DDM2) study, a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial. 127 patients (mean age 60 years) with stable (HbA1c ≤ 7.5%) diabetes managed with...

Purpose The purpose of this paper was to review the available approaches for bone strength assessment, osteoporosis diagnosis and fracture risk prediction, and to provide insights into radiofrequency echographic multi spectrometry (REMS), a non-ionizing axial skeleton technique.

The impact of nutrition on the metabolic profile of osteoporosis is incompletely characterized. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to detangle the association of fruit and vegetable (FV) intakes with osteoporosis prevalence. Dietary, anthropometric and blood plasma metabolite data were examined from the Boston Puerto Rican Osteoporosis Study, a cohort of 600 individuals (age 46-79yr). High FV intake was protective against osteoporosis prevalence (Odds Ratio=0.73; 95% CI = 0.57, 0.94...
