Bone mineral content (BMC), mineral homeostasis, and diabetes control were evaluated in 31 Caucasian insulin-dependent diabetic patients (disease duration 18.3 +/- 7.7 yr, mean +/- SD) with normal kidney function. To evaluate bone mass, we performed radiogrammetry and single- and dual-photon absorptiometry. In women, a significantly lower mean BMC was found in the distal radius, at a mixed trabecular-cortical (P less than .01) and a cortical (P less than .05) site, as well as in the lumbar… CONTINUE READING
