Insulin use and excess fracture risk in patients with type 2 diabetes: a propensity-matched cohort analysis

Abstract:

Despite normal to high bone mineral density, patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) have an increased fracture risk. T2DM medications could partially account for this excess risk. The aim of this study was to assess the association between insulin use and bone fracture risk in T2DM patients.
