Irrespective of which type of diabetes, we explain that there is an increased risk of fracture due to decreased bone strength. We discuss cortical and trabecular bone; a new bone imaging device – the high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography, which can take images of bone at high resolution and thereby can give us a more detailed understanding of what is happening in people with diabetes.

We discuss her ongoing study of osteoporosis and how it has revealed that your risk of dying prematurely increases following a fracture. We also discuss the reasons this may be so and opportunities for intervention and prevention. • What is the chance of dying following a fracture? • Is this the same for men and women, for all types of fractures? • What about if you have existing conditions? How do they impact on your risk following a fracture? • Why/How does a fracture increase your risk of dying? • How should we treat individuals who have had a fracture? Why have outcomes following a fracture not changed in over 20 years! Contact us: Twitter: @DrAyseZ & @Sandroppa Email: [email protected]
