New York (Reuters Health) - Bone mineral density ( BMD ) declines early in the course of type 1 diabetes in men but is little affected by the condition in women, according to a 10-year prospective study.
Type 1 diabetes is associated with a six-fold increase of Hip fracture in epidemiologic studies, and most studies, and most studies have shown a reduction in BMD with type 1 diabetes, with some reporting a greater decrease in men than in women.
In an earlier study, Dr. Timothy M. E. Davis of the University of Western Australia Medical School and Fremantle Hospital and colleagues found that community-based adult men but not in woman with type 1 diabetes had reduced BMD at the hip, femoral neck and spine compared with matched controls.
For their current report, they reassessed 48 of the 102 study participants with diabetes after a mean of 10 years.
