AIMS: To determine the relative risk of incident hip fracture in patients with type 1 diabetes and matched controls and to compare hip fracture rates in age- and sex-matched patients with type 1 versus type 2 diabetes. METHODS: Longitudinal observational study of 121 adults with type 1 diabetes. Age and sex matching was possible for 93 pairs of type 1 and type 2 participants. The main outcome measure was incident hip fracture hospitalisation. CONCLUSIONS: Hip fracture risk is markedly elevated in type 1 diabetes compared with age and sex-matched individuals without diabetes and with type 2 diabetes from the same population.
