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.

Mortality increased in juvenile-onset SLE

As reported in Rheumatology, juvenile-onset SLE is associated with increased lupus nephritis, hemolytic anemia, and mortality compared to adult-onset SLE.
