Bone Fragility in Diabetes: New Research Focuses on Diabetic Bone Disease

Cover Story: People with diabetes have an increased risk of fractures, which is often underdiagnosed and impacts their mobility as well as their mortality. A new array of treatments and assessments — novel therapeutics, senolytics, revamped prescribing protocols, and more — are needed to better concentrate on diabetic bone disease. An emerging complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is confounding clinicians and prompting new research into its pathophysiology as well as its prevention and treatment: increased fracture risk as a result of bone fragility. In older adults, this risk is compounded by the risk for falls and fractures inherent to their age.
