Key Words Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis; Hepatic osteodystrophy; Bone mineral density
Core Tip Identifying the relationship between non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and bone mineral density (BMD) and its underlying mechanism is important. We found that patients with biopsy-proven non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) had higher lumbar BMD and serum 25-OH-vitamin-D3 levels compared to healthy controls. We did not find a significant relationship between serum levels of thyroid hormones, sex hormones, parathormone and cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, insulin-like growth factor-1, IGFBP-3 levels and BMD. An elevated serum 25-OH-vitamin D3 level may be the principle responsible factor in the increased bone mineral density in patients with NASH.
