• Early-onset Type 1 Diabetes May Influence Bone Quality in Women

    “Our results suggest significant impairment in the bone structural quality among patients who were diagnosed with [type 1 diabetes] before the age of 20 years,” the researchers wrote. “Young-onset [type 1 diabetes] is characterized by lower trabecular [volumetric] BMD at the distal radius and cortical bone size deficit at the radial and tibial shaft. This may be due to reduced periosteal apposition and increased endosteal resorption, resulting in a cortical deficit among patients with [type 1 diabetes].” The researchers noted several study limitations, including the inclusion of only postmenopausal women, the small sample size and the limited resolution of peripheral quantitative CT, which did not allow for the evaluation of trabecular structure or cortical porosity.
