In Vivo Assessment of Bone Quality in Postmenopausal Women With Type 2 Diabetes

J Bone Miner Res, (2014) 29; 787–795

The findings represent the first demonstration, using a direct in vivo measure of BMS, of compromised bone material properties in patients with T2D. Further, our results confirm previous studies demonstrating low bone turnover in patients with T2D and highlight the potential detrimental effects of prolonged hyperglycemia on bone quality. Thus, the skeleton needs to be recognized as another important target tissue subject to diabetic complications.
