The aim of the current study was to evaluate bone status at the radius and phalanx in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes by using quantitative ultrasound (QUS) measurements. Thirty pediatric patients, 16 male and 14 female, with type 1 diabetes of duration of 5 to 177 months and mean (± SD) age 11.3 ± 4.6 years were studied. QUS measurements were carried out using the Sunlight Omnisense 7000 S device. Speed of sound (SOS) was measured at the radius and tibia. Diabetic control was… CONTINUE READING
