Highlights in Rheumatology

Sclerostin associated with bone turnover in elderly women

As reported in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society, sclerostin levels are associated with osteocalcin, C-termial telopeptide of type I collagen, and PTH levels in elderly women (≥ 70 y) in nursing homes, but not mortality.

Increased prevalence of osteoporosis in morbidly obese

As reported in the International Journal of Clinical Practice, while there is a decreased prevalence of osteoporosis up to a BMI of 40 kg/m2, the prevalence of osteoporosis increases in patients with a BMI > 40 kg/m2, which is thought to be due to decreased weight-bearing exercise.

Serum uric acid correlates with erectile dysfunction

As reported in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, men with erectile dysfunction have higher levels of serum uric acid than men without (6.12 mg/dL vs. 4.97 mg/dL). Comparing the highest and lowest tertiles for serum uric acid, the OR for erectile dysfunction was 5.95.
