Osteomalacic Myopathy

osteomalacic myopathy in celiac diseaseWhat Is Osteomalacic Myopathy?

Osteomalacic myopathy is a major feature of osteomalacia that is characterized by painful muscle weakness involving the thighs and upper arms and hyperreflexia.

Q: What is hyperreflexia?

A: Hyperreflexia means the action of reflexes is increased. Reflex action is an involuntary, or automatic, response to a stimulus. A reflex action is complicated but essentially depends on  a normal responding muscle which is altered in osteomalacia.

Osteomalacic myopathy is diagnosed on bloodwork that shows deficient levels of vitamin D and elevated levels of parathyroid hormone and alkaline phosphatase, a bone enzyme.
