Profiles of endogenous circulating cortisol and bone mineral density in healthy elderly men.

Abstract:

Exogenous glucocorticoids are known to increase the risk of osteoporosis. However, the contribution made by endogenous circulating cortisol concentrations to adult skeletal status remains unknown. We examined this issue in a sample of 34 healthy men, aged 61-72 yr. Venous blood samples were obtained under standard conditions every 20 min over a 24-h period. Measurements were made of serum cortisol and cortisol-binding globulin. Bone mineral density was measured at the lumbar spine and proxima...
