Study Finds Diabetes Increase Risk of Fractures

Study Finds Diabetes Increase Risk of Fractures

Diabetes can lead to a number of complications, including nerve damage, foot problems, heart disease, and high blood pressure. According to a new study, diabetes may also increase the risk of hip and non-vertebral fractures. 

For their study, the researchers used data from 49 studies that included approximately 20 million participants. The studies looked at the risk of fractures in adults with diabetes compared to adults without diabetes. Forty-two of the studies looked at hip fractures and 7 looked at non-vertebral fractures.

The researchers found that participants with type 1 or type 2 diabetes had an increased risk of hip and non-vertebral fractures compared to those without diabetes. Participants with type 1 diabetes had the highest risk. For those with type 2 diabetes, longer duration of diabetes and insulin use had the greatest risk. Hip fracture risk was greatest in the younger population.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Sheffield. It was published online ahead of print on May 29, 2020 in the journal Bone.
