Bone mineral content (BMC) and bone density (BMC/W) of the radius were measured in 138 maturity-type diabetics with the Norland-Cameron bone mineral analyzer and compared with the results of age- and sex-matched controls. In some age groups the mean cortical and trabecular bone mass and density seemed to be significantly higher among diabetic patients, especially in those treated with oral antidiabetic agents. Individual analysis reveals the existence of two distinct diabetic populations--a… CONTINUE READING
