Hyperthyroid induced Osteopenia

- Discussion:
- hyperthyroidism produces high turnover type osteopenia from increased activity of the remodeling system;
- high turnover osteopenia occurs in both hyperthyoidism & hyper-parathyroidism, although abnormalities of calcium homeostasis seen in hyperparathyroidism do not occur in hyperthyroidism;
