Department of Pediatrics, Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.Journal of pediatric endocrinology & metabolism: JPEM (Impact Factor: 1). 01/1996; 9(6):609-11. DOI: 10.1515/JPEM.19126.96.36.1999
A study of Ca-P related hormones and bone densities was carried out in seven homozygous beta-thalassemia patients. The levels of Ca, P, and Ca-P related hormones were not significantly changed except for 1,25(OH)2D3 which was significantly lower than in the control group and was inversely related to patients' ferritin levels. Bone densities were markedly reduced in all the thalassemic patients.
