Early Trabecular Compensation in Femoral Bone of the Diabetic NOD*B10 foz/foz Mouse

Fleming, Madeleine

Description

Bone mineral density (BMD) does not adequately predict bone fracture risk in contemporary type 2 diabetic patients. The rising prevalence of younger onset diabetes and obesity together reveal an endemic fragility for diabetic patients with equal or higher BMD than non-diabetics. Other factors contribute to this paradoxical fracture risk jeopardising skeletal acquisition and lifetime bone remodelling capacity. NOD*B10 mice are susceptible to obesity and diabetes unlike the BALB/c strain...[Show more]
