Key Words Alcoholic liver diseases; Bone fractures; Osteoporosis
Core Tip Excessive alcohol consumption is a well-established risk factor for osteoporosis and bone fractures. However, light amounts of alcohol ingestion is known to be associated with higher bone mineral density (BMD) and low fracture rates. This study evaluated the current evidence regarding osteoporosis and bone fractures in alcoholic liver disease (ALD). In this meta-analysis, there was significant associations between bone fractures and ALD, independent of BMD or the presence of osteoporosis. Although the mechanism of bone fractures in ALD is not totally understood, further research utilizing a homogenous population and controlling for confounding risk factors for fractures could elucidate the mechanism.
