• Fragility fractures may be unrelated to BMD in long-standing type 1 diabetes

    Bone mineral density for women with type 1 diabetes was lower at the femoral neck but higher at the lumbar spine compared with BMD for women without diabetes, and those with diabetes experienced more fragility fractures, findings published in the Journal of Diabetes and its Complications show.
    This suggests that lower BMD may not be connected to fragility fractures in long-standing type 1 diabetes, according to researchers.
    “While associations between diabetes complications and reduced BMD have been identified, the risk factors associated lower BMD and subsequent fracture risk in

  • No pubertal delay observed in boys with type 1 diabetes

    Boys with type 1 diabetes tend to begin puberty at a similar or even earlier age than healthy boys, a finding that suggests optimization of insulin is improving metabolic control and pubertal timing, according to findings published in Pediatric Diabetes.
    Previous research has described an advancement in the age of puberty initiation in healthy boys; however, it remains unclear whether boys with type 1 diabetes have experienced a similar change in pubertal timing, Ethel Codner, MD, professor of pediatric endocrinology and diabetology at the Institute of Maternal and Child Research at the
