The Journal’s beginnings and its raison d’être  The journal Revista de Osteoporosis y Metabolismo Mineral (ROMM) is the scientific publication of the Spanish Society of Bone Research and Mineral Metabolism (SEIOMM, from its original Spanish title). Its creation was agreed on during the XIII SEIOMM Congress held in Oviedo in 2008. Until then, the Society journal was the Spanish Journal of Bone Metabolic Diseases, which had been founded in 1993 by Dr. Aurelio Rapado Errazti and presented at the SEIOMM Congress held in Córdoba, Spain. Known as REEMO, this belonged to the Elsevier publishing company, then Doyma, directed by Dr. Rapado. This journal had...

Vitamin D deficiency in postmenopausal Ecuadorian women with diabetes mellitus type 2

(  PDF )   Rev Osteoporos Metab Miner. 2018; 10 (1): 7-14 DOI: 10.4321/S1889-836X2018000100002 López Gavilanez E1, Orces CH2, Guerrero Franco K3, Segale Bajaña Á3, Veliz Ortega J3, Bajaña Granja W4 1 Servicio de Endocrinología – Hospital Docente Policía Nacional – Guayaquil (Ecuador) 2 Centro Médico de Laredo – Laredo – Texas (Estados Unidos) 3 Servicio de Medicina Interna – Hospital Docente Policía Nacional – Guayaquil (Ecuador) 4 Laboratorio Clínico Interlab – Guayaquil (Ecuador)   Summary Objectives: To know the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in Ecuadorian postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes mellitus, and to investigate the correlation between serum levels of vitamin D, variables of metabolic control of type 2 diabetes mellitus, markers of bone metabolism and bone mineral density. Design, materials and methods: Epidemiological study descriptive and cross-sectional design, carried out between January 2012 November 2015. In 124 postmenopausal women, 96 with type 2 diabetes mellitus and 28 without diabetes, we measured serum levels of vitamin D, glycosylated hemoglobin, HOMA-IR, parathyroid hormone, ionic calcium, osteocalcin, urinary deoxypiridinoline and bone density. Premenopausal women, kidney disease, type 1 diabetes, secondary osteoporosis, and those who received treatments that affect bone metabolism, were excluded. We separate patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in 2 groups: group sufficiency vitamin D (>30 ng/mL) and group insufficiency vitamin D (<30 ng/mL). The latter group was subdivided into insufficiency (<30 ng/mL), deficiency (<20 ng/mL) and severe deficiency (<10...

Relationship between the presence of anemia and the risk of osteoporosis in women with rheumatoid arthritis

(  PDF )   Rev Osteoporos Metab Miner. 2018; 10 (1): 15-20 DOI: 10.4321/S1889-836X2018000100003 Batún-Garrido JAJ1, Salas-Magaña M2 1 Servicio Medicina Interna – Centro Médico ISSET (Instituto de Seguridad Social del Estado de Tabasco) – Villahermosa – Tabasco (México) 2 Departamento de Ciencias Biomédicas – Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco – Villahermosa – Tabasco (México)   Summary Introduction: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis present a high prevalence of osteoporosis, partly due to the use of glucocorticoids. However, there are other causal factors. Material and methods: 122 women diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis were studied. Serum hemoglobin concentrations were determined and bone densitometry carried out by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. A multivariate logistic regression model was used to determine the association of the variables studied. Results: 32.8% of the women studied presented hemoglobin <12 g/dL. The mean T-score in the lumbar spine was -1.8±1.5; 36.9% had a low bone mass, 32.8% osteoporosis criteria and 30.3% normal T-score. The mean of the femur T-score was -0.6±1.4; 63.9% was normal value, 23.8% presented low bone mass and 12.3% criterion of osteoporosis. Hemoglobin ≥12 g/dL and a bone mineral density (BMD) of the normal femur (p=0.003), and between hemoglobin <12 g/dL and BMD of femur with osteoporosis (p<0.000). There was an independent association between osteoporosis and body mass index <30 kg/m2 (OR=4.1, 95% CI: 1.4-11.4, p=0.009) and the presence of anemia (OR=8.9, 95% CI: 3.7-22.4, p=0.001). Conclusions: In our...

Effect of biological therapy on concentrations of DKK1 and sclerostin, cardiovascular risk and bone metabolism in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

(  PDF )   Rev Osteoporos Metab Miner. 2018; 10 (1): 21-29 DOI: 10.4321/S1889-836X2018000100004 Palma-Sánchez D1, Haro-Martínez AC1, Gallardo Muñoz I2, Portero de la Torre M2, García-Fontana B3, Reyes-García R4 1 Unidad de Reumatología.

Murcia (España) 3 Instituto de Investigación Biosanitaria de Granada. Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Granada. Granada (España) 4 Servicio de Endocrinología. Hospital Torrecárdenas. Almería (España)   Summary Introduction: Previous studies have linked the Wnt pathway in the alteration of bone metabolism and cardiovascular pathology. Also, the control of inflammation with biological therapy has a positive effect on bone mineral density (BMD) and cardiovascular risk. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of biological therapy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, naïve to these therapy, on the inflammatory load and its relation with cardiovascular risk and bone metabolism. Patients and methods: Prospective cohort study performed in patients diagnosed with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) initiating biological therapy. Patients were selected consecutively not selected. The serum concentrations of Dickkopf-1 protein (DKK1) and sclerostin were collected, both by means of the ELISA method (Biomedica Medizinprodukte GmbH and Co. KG, Vienna, Austria); demographic and clinical variables, markers of bone remodeling, hip and lumbar spine BMDs were measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), measurement of intima-media thickness (IMT), evaluation cardiovascular risk by Systematic Coronary Risk...
