This study evaluated the hypothesis that increased bone marrow adipogenesis is coupled to decreased bone formation in rats consuming alcohol. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) increased bone formation but had no effect on marrow adiposity. We conclude that increased adiposity does not prevent the bone anabolic response to PTH.
