Abstract
The aim of this study was to describe physical activity, quality of and satisfaction with life, pain, joint mobility and muscle function in adults with mild-to-moderate osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) to form the basis of improved clinical care and physical therapy treatment.
A total of 40 men and women aged between 21 and 71?years were identified and a prospective, cross-sectional study was performed on 29 (18 women) included participants. The participants had to be able to walk and to have a diagnosis of mild-to-moderate OI. Self-administered questionnaires and clinical examinations were used.
Difficulties were found in all domains of the International Classification of Functioning, Activity and Health. Pain was reported in 25 of 29 participants and scoliosis was found in 23 participants. Difficulty to run was estimated in 18 participants. A total of 19 of 27 participants reported reaching the recommendations of 30?min of moderate-intensity activity preferably every day. Life satisfaction was high even though health-related quality of life, assessed with the Short Form 36, was significantly lower than the Swedish norm.
Impairments and activity limitations involved pain, scoliosis, contractures as well as trouble with running, heavy lifting, heavy work and sports. This study show that individuals with mild-to-moderate OI perceive themselves as having decreased health-related quality of life and this seems to depend on decreased physical functioning. Despite that, as a group, they estimated high life satisfaction and 19 participants reported adhering to the general recommendation of 30?min of moderate-intensity activity preferably every day.

Abstract
Dual X-ray and Laser (DXL) adds a measure of the external thickness of the heel, measured by laser, to a conventional measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) of the calcaneus, using Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA). The addition of heel thickness aims at a better separation of fatty tissue from bone than the standard method of DXA, which may mistake fatty tissue for bone and vice versa. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate whether DXL of the calcaneus can be used to assess the 10-year risk of fractures. Secondary aims were to compare the predictive ability of DXL with the two most established methods, Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) of the hip and spine and the WHO fracture risk assessment tool, FRAX. In 1999 a cohort of 388 elderly Swedish women (mean age 73.2 years) was examined with all three methods. Prospective fracture data was collected in 2010 from health care registers. One SD decrease in BMD of the heel resulted in an age-adjusted Hazard Ratio (HR) of 1.47 for a hip fracture (95% CI 1.09-1.98). Harrell's C is the Cox regression counterpart of the Area Under Curve (AUC) of the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) as a measure of predictive accuracy. Harrell's C for BMD of the calcaneus was 0.65 for prediction of hip fractures. These results were not significantly different from those for BMD of the femoral neck or for FRAX. The HR for a hip fracture, for one SD decrease in BMD at the femoral neck, was 1.72 (95% CI 1.21-2.44. Harrell's C was 0.67 for BMD at the femoral neck and 0.59 for FRAX. We conclude that DXL of the calcaneus could be a useful tool for fracture risk assessments.

Abstract
To compare perinatal outcomes in births of women with versus without a history of bariatric surgery.
Population based matched cohort study.
Swedish national health service.
1,742,702 singleton births identified in the Swedish medical birth register between 1992 and 2009. For each birth to a mother with a history of bariatric surgery (n=2562), up to five control births were matched by maternal age, parity, early pregnancy body mass index, early pregnancy smoking status, educational level, and year of delivery. Secondary control cohorts, including women eligible for bariatric surgery (body mass index = 35 or = 40), were matched for the same factors except body mass index. History of maternal bariatric surgery was ascertained through the Swedish national patient register from 1980 to 2009.

Abstract
Vitamin D insufficiency may increase the risk for cardio metabolic disturbances in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT).
To analyze the vitamin D status and indices of the metabolic syndrome in PHPT patients and the effect of vitamin D supplementation after parathyroid adenomectomy (PTX).
Double-blinded, randomized clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT00982722) performed at Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden, April 2008 to November 2011. One hundred and fifty consecutive patients with PHPT (119 women) were randomized after PTX, 75 to oral treatment with calcium carbonate 1000?mg daily and 75 to calcium carbonate 1000?mg and cholecalciferol 1600?IU daily over 12 months. Changes in metabolic profile and ambulatory blood pressure (BP) were analyzed. Main outcome measures were changes in metabolic factors, BP, and body composition.
The 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D)-level was

Abstract
AIM: To analyse serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in mothers of Somali origin and those of Swedish origin who have children with and without autism as there is a growing evidence that low vitamin D impacts adversely on brain development. METHOD: Four groups of mothers were invited to participate; 20 with Somali origin with at least one child with autism, 20 with Somali origin without a child with autism, 20 of Swedish origin with at least one child with autism and 20 with Swedish origin without a child with autism. Two blood samples were collected from each individual; during autumn and spring. RESULTS: Between 12 and 17 mothers from the different groups accepted to participate, both groups of mothers of Somali origin had significantly lower values of 25-hydroxyvitamin D compared with Swedish mothers. The difference of 25-hydroxyvitamin D between mothers of Somali origin with and without a child with autism was not significant. CONCLUSION: Our findings of low vitamin D levels in Somali women entail considerable consequences in a public health perspective. The observed tendency, i.e. the lowest values in mothers of Somali origin with a child with autism was in the predicted direction, supporting the need for further research of vitamin D levels in larger samples of Somali mothers of children with and without autism.
