- Fracture experience of patients with coeliac disease: a population based survey. Thomason, K.; West, J.; Logan, R.F.A.; Coupland, C.; Holmes, G.K.T. // Gut;Apr2003, Vol. 52 Issue 4, p518
Background: While coeliac disease is now recognised as being associated with both osteoporosis and osteomalacia, the size of any increase in the risk of fracture in patients with coeliac disease compared with the general population has not been quantified. Aim: To examine the fracture experience...

Osteoporosis affects many patients with celiac disease (CD), representing the consequence of calcium malabsorption and persistent activation of mucosal inflammation. A slight increase of fracture risk is evident in this condition, particularly in those with overt malabsorption and in...
- Celiac disease and risk of fracture in adults-a review. Hjelle, A.; Apalset, E.; Mielnik, P.; Bollerslev, J.; Lundin, K.; Tell, G. // Osteoporosis International;Jun2014, Vol. 25 Issue 6, p1667
Patients with celiac disease (CD) have low bone mineral density. Evidence of increased fracture risk in these patients is conflicting, and the indication for bone mineral density screening of all adult CD patients is debated. Our aim was to review current published data on fractures in CD....

- New research emerges on DMPA fracture risks. // Contraceptive Technology Update;May2013, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p53
The article describes a study which found a small increase in the risk of bone fractures in women who used the contraceptive injection depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA), but researchers did not attribute the risk to the drug itself.
- Levothyroxine dose and fractures in older adults. Leese, Graham P.; Flynn, Robert V. // BMJ: British Medical Journal (Overseas & Retired Doctors Edition;5/7/2011, Vol. 342 Issue 7805, p986
The authors reflect on the risk of fractures in older adults from the use of levothyroxine in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. They say that the level of serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) determines the choice of drug dosage in clinical practice with increase risk at higher dosage. They...
- Levothyroxine dose and risk of fractures. // BMJ: British Medical Journal (Overseas & Retired Doctors Edition;5/7/2011, Vol. 342 Issue 7805, p1009
The article discusses the correlation between levothyroxine dosages in the treatment of hyperthyroidism and fractures based on a study conducted by Marci Turner and colleagues which found that 10 percent of current levothyroxine users had a fracture.
