Recently, a number of studies have demonstrated the potential beneficial role for novel anti-diabetic GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) in the skeleton metabolism in diabetic rodents and patients. In this study, we evaluated the impacts of the synthetic GLP-1RA Liraglutide on bone mass and quality in osteoporotic rats induced by ovariectomy (OVX) but(More)
Accumulating evidence suggests that oxidative stress is associated with osteoporosis. Serum uric acid (UA) is a strong endogenous antioxidant. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between the serum UA and BMD in Chinese men with T2DM. In this cross-sectional study of 621 men with T2DM, BMDs at lumbar spine (L2-4), femoral neck (FN), and total hip(More)
CONTEXT Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) may be more helpful than dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in detecting bone deficits in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to compare differences in bone mass measurement by DXA and QUS in T2DM and nondiabetic postmenopausal women. DESIGN, SETTING, AND(More)
