Diabetes makes bones less bendable, more prone to fracture
from Medical Xpress
Besides impairing cardiovascular and kidney function, Type 2 diabetes is known to be a risk factor for bone fractures – but exactly how diabetes makes bones more fragile has been unclear. New research in animal models by a team of scientists at UC San Francisco, UC Davis and UC Berkeley suggests that the disease compromises the collagen within bones, making the bones less flexible and more likely to break.
