Bone histomorphometry suggests that in premenopausal women with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) glycemic control is associated with bone remodeling, and may increase fracture risk, according to researchers in Brazil.
Researchers studied 26 women with T2DM and mean age 41.6 years. Compared with controls, bone volume was significantly increased in diabetic women, but osteoide thickness was significantly lower. The findings are published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
