Glycaemic control tied to raised fracture risk in type 1 diabetes

Those with vascular complications such as retinopathy face an even higher risk: study

Patients with type 1 diabetes are more likely to break a bone when they have poor glycaemic control, a large study suggests.

Diabetes has long been linked to an increased risk of fractures, but research to date has been mixed regarding exactly what role blood glucose levels play in this risk, the Swiss authors say.
