 (submitted: May 14, 2019)
Abnormal bone mineral density rate [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
abnormal bone mineral density is defined as T-score < -1 SD in menopause women or men older than 50 years old, or Z score < -2 SD in premenopausal women or men not older than 50 year old.

Current Secondary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: May 14, 2019)
  • abnormal thyroid function rate [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
    abnormal thyroid function is defined as abnormal free thyroxine or abnormal thyrotropin. Normal range of free thyroxine is 0.6-1.75 ng/dl. normal range of thyrotropin is 0.1-4.5 mU/l.
  • abnormal pituitary function rate [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
    abnormal pituitary function is defined as any of the abnormality in serum adrenocorticotropin (pg/l), IGF-1 (ng/ml). thyrotropin (mU/l), FSH (U/l), LH (U/l)

Descriptive Information
Brief Title Observing the Changes of Endocrine and Metabolism in Patients With Thalassemia Major
Official Title Observing the Changes of Endocrine and Metabolism in Patients With Thalassemia Major
Brief Summary Patient with thalassemia major have many endocrine diseases, such as hypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidis, osteoporosis, and etc.. These problems may be due to anemia itself or related to iron deposition. This study aimed to investigate the endocrine aspect of thalassemia major patients in Taiwan in order to introduce early intervention or treatment in the future.
