Introduction: Fracture risk is greater for adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D), despite normal or higher areal bone mineral density (aBMD) compared to controls. Tissue mineral density (TMD), measured by microCT, is more representative of actual mineral density than in vivo aBMD. The aim of this study was to determine whether TMD is greater in adults with T2D, and to investigate the correlates of TMD in adults with T2D.Methods: Using proximal femur...

Objective: Evidence for further reduction of nonvertebral fracture (NVFX) beyond 3 years of antiresorptive therapy is limited. Since long-term denosumab (DMAb) treatment is associated with continuous increases in BMD and sustained fracture reduction, we analyzed the influence of femoral neck (FN) BMD after 3 years on NVFX rates.Methods: Long-term subjects received 7 continuous years of DMAb; cross-over subjects received 3 years of placebo (FREEDOM) and 4...
