The detrimental effect of obesity on TBS, an index of bone quality, was demonstrated in subjects with PHPT. Obesity was associated with fully degraded skeletal microarchitecture as measured by TBS in PHPT, despite similar values in bone density by DXA compared to non-obese subjects. TBS values did not improve post-parathyroidectomy in either obese or non-obese subjects.
