Severity of liver disease does not predict osteopenia or low bone mineral density in primary sclerosing cholangitis.
BACKGROUND: The association between metabolic bone disease and cholestatic liver disease has been poorly characterized. To date a single institution has published data suggesting that in primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), advanced liver disease predicts advanced bone disease. AIM: To determine the association between the severity of liver disease and bone mineral density (BMD) in PSC patients.
