Özet

Introduction: Despite the accumulating evidence suggesting a possible relationship between femur and lumbar bone mineral density (BMD) and serum uric acid (UA), it is unclear whether alterations in UA levels reflect any underlying subclinical inflammatory conditions in postmenopausal osteoporosis. In addition, the mechanistic link between osteoporosis and dietary factors including vitamin B-1(2), and folate in postmenopausal women is still obscure. The aim of the present study is to investigate the association between serum vitamin folate, UA, and subclinical inflammatory markers and BMD measurements in postmenopausal women.
