Abstract

Objectives: Patients with chronic liver disease (CLD) have an increased prevalence of osteoporosis. However, there is limited information about the effects of end-stage liver disease on bone metabolism and bone mineral density values in postmenopausal women. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of chronic liver disease on bone mineral density (BMD) and bone metabolism markers in postmenopausal women.
