Higher Risk of Bone Fracture Among People with Diabetes


Here is an interesting piece from A Sweet Life about a study done on people with diabetes and bone fractures / bone density.


The study was done on mice, not people, but I still found it quite interesting.  Although I have not had any bone problems (so far), I do have many friends with diabetes who have broken or fractured bones simply by stepping wrong or other normal activities that shouldn't have cause a break.

What are your thoughts?  Have you experienced bone issues?
