Are serotonin metabolite levels related to bone mineral density in patients with neuroendocrine tumours?

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Bone mineral density (BMD) is influenced by multiple factors. Recent studies have highlighted a possible relationship between serotonin and BMD. Patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) frequently have elevated urinary 5-hydroxy-indoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, a serotonin metabolite. Evaluation of the relationship between 5-HIAA and BMD in patients with NETs may provide insights into the relationship between serotonin and BMD. METHODS: One-year audit of consecutive patients ...
