    2019 - E4: How Coeliac Disease effects bone mineral density, with Dr Eleanor Thong

    We discuss:
    1. What is coeliac disease?
    2. Do you we know why some people get it and other don't? who is at risk?
    3. How common is the condition?
    4. What are the symptoms?
    5. How is coeliac disease diagnosed?
    6. How does coeliac disease effect bone health?

    2019 - E3: Bone mineral density in cystic fibrosis patients

    2019 - E3: Bone mineral density in cystic fibrosis patients

    Cystic fibrosis (CF)is a common life-limiting autosomal recessive genetic disorder, where gene must be inherited from both parents and it can skip generations. CF is caused by mutation of a gene that encodes a chloride-conducting transmembrane channel called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), which regulates mucous clearance in the airways.

    With this increased longevity, a number of new problems have emerged, including low bone mineral density, osteoporotic fractures, and kyphosis. Recent studies from Putman et al provide evidence as to how bone is compromised in CF patients.

    Full text of the studies can bee found here:

    2019-E2: The effects of physical activity on your bones during adulthood and ageing

    2019-E2: The effects of physical activity on your bones during adulthood and ageing

    2019-E2: The effects of physical activity on your bones during adulthood and ageing

    We discuss the findings from very large longitudinal study from the UK called the National Survey of Health and Development (NSHD).

    The main findings were:
    - Greater participation in physical activity over 28 years was positively associated with bone density at all sites.
    - There were sex differences: greater effects in men than women; these were mainly driven by muscle mass.
    - Any physical activity that is performed is beneficial for your bones, whether it be at age 36 or 60-64, it's better than not performing ANY at all.

    The complete study can be found below:

    2019-E1: The cost of fracture & osteoporosis in Australia

    2019-E1: The cost of fracture & osteoporosis in Australia

    The cost of fracture & osteoporosis in Australia.
    This episode reports findings from a recent study published in the Journal of Bone & Mineral Research which shows how much fractures, osteoporosis and osteopenia cost the healthcare system. The main finding was the total direct cost of osteoporosis in Australia in 2017 was estimated to be $3.44 billion - ALOT OF MONEY!!
