Highlights in Rheumatology

Low vitamin D associated with statin-induced myalgia

As reported in Clinical Therapeutics, of 450 patients prescribed high-dose simvastatin (80 mg qd) for dyslipidemia, 11.1% complained of myalgias. The vitamin D level was lower in patients with myalgias than patients without myalgias (26.2 vs. 36.3 ng/mL).

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.

Fluvastatin improves pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic markers in aPL-positive patients

As reported in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, treatment of persistent aPL-positive patients with fluvastatin (40 mg qd x 3 months) improved pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic markers (IL1-β, VEGF, TNF-α, IP10, sCD40L, and sTF).
