Contemporary risk of hip fracture in type 1 and type 2 diabetes: a national registry study from Scotland
Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, 10/28/2013Hothersall EJ, et al.
The purpose of this study was to compare contemporary risk of hip fracture in type 1 and type 2 diabetes with the non–diabetic population. There remains a substantial elevation relative risk of hip fracture in people with type 1 diabetes but the relative risk is much lower than in earlier studies. In contrast overall there is currently little elevation in overall hip fracture risk with type 2 diabetes but this may mask elevations in risk in particular subgroups of type 2 diabetes patients with different BMI or diabetes duration or drug exposure.
