Diabetes, Osteoporosis, and Bone Fractures
It is common to hear about the relationship between diabetes and the feet, eyes, kidneys, heart, and brain. However, diabetes can also affect bone health up to 12 times more in women with Type 1 diabetes.
Individuals with Type 1 diabetes (the loss of insulin produced by the pancreas) or Type 2 diabetes (the body’s inability to use insulin and a slow loss of one’s ability to make insulin) have an increased risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis. . Associated with decreased bone mass, women with Type 1 diabetes are 12 times more likely to have a fracture than women without diabetes. Although bone mass may or may not be decreased in those with Type 2 diabetes, there is evidence of altered bone quality. The duration of diabetes also plays a role as those living with the condition for more than 5 years tend to be at a higher risk for fractures and poor fracture healing.
Its ultra-small size and weight (similar to and even lighter than a hardcover book), intuitive ease of use, and convenient USB-port connectivity to Windows™ 7 and above PCs and laptops makes it ideal for use in any physician office or medical clinic, pharmacy, annual checkup center or other retail venues.
