The effect of insulin on bone mineral density among women with type 2 diabetes: a SWAN Pharmacoepidemiology study

Abstract

This was a longitudinal study examining the effects of insulin use on bone mineral density loss. Insulin use was found to be associated with greater bone mineral density loss at the femoral neck among women with diabetes mellitus. Women with diabetes mellitus (DM) have higher bone mineral density (BMD) and experience slower BMD loss but have an increased… (More)
